Individual grants

Devon Community Foundation manages a number of funds which are for the benefit of individuals. All Stage 1 Applications must be completed by an application referee on behalf of the individual.

Applications for individuals can be made throughout the year, please call the Grants Team on 01884 235887 if you have any questions. Funds which are currently accepting applications for individuals are listed below:

Devonian Fund
The Devonian Fund helps groups or individuals to alleviate mobility issues in relation to disability or ill-health. This fund aims to help people overcome or relieve mobility problems, such as contributing towards the cost equipment that significantly improves individuals' quality of life. It can also help with specialised transport needs, such as accessible coaches or taxis. The average grant for individuals is between £500 - £1,000.

Individuals are unable to apply directly to the Foundation; instead a Health Care Professional such as an Occupational Therapist, or group working with the individual can apply on their behalf, as an application referee.
