The Onion Collective is based in Watchet, a deprived coastal town in Somerset. Formed in 2012, its aim is to help transform Watchet into a flourishing place to live, work and visit, through creating jobs, ideas, pride and self-worth. It has delivered several regeneration projects to revitalise the community and stimulate the local economy. The Fore has provided funding for staffing resources for The Onion Collective’s ‘new industry for Watchet’ project, which aims to return a manufacturing base to the town, with the intention of creating a new model of rural industrial development that others can follow.
