Royds Community Association

Royds Community Association is a charity that was formed in 1994 to help revitalise the villages of Buttershaw, Woodside and Delph Hill in South West Bradford.


Royds covers an area with a population of around 12,000 people and 3,500 dwellings.

This regeneration was achieved by securing major funding including a £31m SRB (single regeneration budget).

The local community were vital in making the plans which saw hundreds of houses built and renovated. Royds has also helped thousands of people to get into training, find jobs and live healthier lives. Royds continues to provide advice and counselling services for local people covering areas such as debt and welfare.

The project was hailed as a major success and is a nationally recognised example of how community regeneration can be delivered successfully.

In keeping with the Royds ethic of sustainable investment, the legacy is still benefiting the local area - and beyond - through consultancy work.


The project has been sustained by the income still generated from the assets built at that time. These are:

Royds Enterprise Park
a modern, secure by design business park with 47 industrial units, 9 fully serviced offices and 3 flexible training /meeting rooms.

Woodside Village Centre and Café

a base for our professional advice workers and home to a number of community activities such as Taekwondo, football, dance and parties.

Delph Hill Community Centre

provides a home for mother and toddler groups, youth groups and other local activities.

Healthy Living Centre

rented by the NHS, the centre provides a GP surgery for over 3,000 local people.

Woodside Mini-market

at Woodside. Hot and cold food takeaway.


Royds is keen to continue building links in the area and to allow both local groups and individuals access to resources, expertise and funding that might not exist in other areas.
