Re-Opening of MDDC Covid-19 Fund
November 16, 2020

Devon County Council has temporarily reopened the ‘COVID-19 Fund’ to help provide valuable resources to organisations working in communities that have been affected by this second lockdown. Click title above for more…

The money will help voluntary and community groups to tackle the social and economic impacts of this lockdown and help those who are most vulnerable in their communities.

Applications are invited from established 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. Please see the detailed guidance for applications from businesses or non-registered groups.

They will need to include details of how much funding will be required and how the need for amount has been assessed. Grants will typically be between £300 and £700, although in exceptional circumstances offers of up to £1,000 may be made.

The funding is to support community-led schemes that carry out the small but important things that can safely address some of the issues that are arising because of the second national lockdown, including support for those who are clinically extremely vulnerable.

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 measures to support mental health and wellbeing
  • transport-related initiatives that support safe community responses to the outbreak

More details, including how to apply, can be found on their website here –

Applications close on 2 December 2020.
