Devon Growing Communities Fund launched

Projects that support Devon communities have the opportunity to apply for funding through a new scheme.

Grants ranging from £500 to £3,000 are available through the Growing Communities Fund.

This new fund will assist projects which directly benefit communities, either by helping to build self-reliance and resilience, tackle hardship such as food and fuel inequality, improve mental health and wellbeing, address loneliness and isolation, or respond to the climate emergency.Schemes that are eligible for funding can be new initiatives responding to an identified need, as well as those that link to established work but use innovation to improve efficiency and provision or reach a wider audience.
