What is LOVE Devon?
LOVE Devon is a campaign that celebrates what's great about our amazing county and works to support the communities living and working in it.
Devon Communities Together is a charity and our work is diverse and widespread, covering a whole range of projects and services that help Devon's communities to help themselves. We cover so many themes and topics that it is difficult for us to quickly explain exactly what we do. But whatever we are working on and whoever we are working with, all you need to remember is that we do it because we LOVE Devon.
LOVE Devon is a great way for the general public to get involved with our work and help us do even more. It is about people like you, people who are passionate about Devon. We are a champion for the people and places of Devon, and there are lots of ways to support our work...
