Devon County Council: Growing Communities Fund

2 August

Applications are now open for the Growing Communities Fund, for projects that support Devon Communities wishing to build self-resilience, tackle hardship, improve mental health and wellbeing, reduce loneliness or respond to the climate emergency.

The fund will provide grant awards between £500 and £3,000, but are open to discussions with applicant with exemplary or innovative projects. This provides the opportunity for an array of projects and communities to be considered, from small local groups to larger community organisations.

In addition, projects can:

  • Link to already established work and add value
  • Be new and in response to an identified need
  • Use innovation to improve efficiency, and reach a wider range of people and improve provision

The fund can support projects that:

  • address hardship such as food or fuel insecurity, particularly using creative solutions
  • build greater degrees of self-reliance and community resilience
  • tackle loneliness and isolation and build self-esteem
  • whilst responding to the climate emergency, have a clear and direct community benefit
  • show innovation and pilot new ways of working

Applications must be submitted online and funding used or allocated before 31 March 2023. Find full details and eligibility criteria here.

If your organisation has a project in mind, and would like help getting your ideas off the ground or assistance with your application, experts at DR have the knowledge and community experience to help.
