Devon Communities Together staff have access to emerging information, extensive expertise in community resilience, and hold an oversight of community responses across Devon. We are experienced in setting up and supporting networking and resilience, especially within rural areas, and as a rural community council and member of Action with Communities in Rural England, we can access a wealth of knowledge sharing and best practice from across the country. We can help with a range of issues including but not limited to:

  • Maintaining community support networks as we move into recovery
  • Understanding the Devon Local Outbreak Management Plan and how to be prepared for the possibility of local lockdown in your community.
  • Supporting parish councils and community groups through the pandemic, recovery, and local outbreak management planning.
  • Looking after your community building and public spaces throughout coronavirus restrictions and recovery.
  • Providing best practice and resources for Devon's businesses through recovery and the potential of local lockdowns.
  • Best practice guidance in handling a wide range of covid-19 related issues at a community level
  • Continued support for vulnerable members of your community
  • GDPR and safeguarding
