Fund description:

Devon County Council has re-opened the COVID-19 Fund to provide flexible resources to organisations working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus.

Applications for grants of between £300 and £700 can be made to support community-led schemes, which identify and/or achieve the small but important things that can safely address some of the issues that are arising as a result of the third national lockdown. These can include:

  • safe deliveries of essential goods and services to those who are vulnerable, such as foods and medicines
  • support for accessing online information and services
  • helping people to stay connected and informed and to support mental health and wellbeing
  • transport-related initiatives that support safe community responses to the outbreak

Applications are accepted from constituted and not-for-profit voluntary and community groups and organisations, town and parish councils, charities or businesses, or a combination of such groups working together.
