Devon Community Foundation invests and manages funds and distributes grants on behalf of individuals, companies, charitable trusts and statutory agencies to meet needs in Devon.

To promote local resilience, Devon Community Foundation and Devon County Council are working together to support communities across the County.

We are keen to support communities to encourage people to prepare and have a resilience plan for emergencies through their community action, therefore we are offering funding to support resilience initiatives.

The purpose of this funding is to support your community in this planning, to purchasing equipment or supplies that will result in a resilient community that is more aware and prepared for an emergency.
