Are you Thinking of Running a Local Project to Help Older People in Devon?


Devon Community Foundation, Somerset Community Foundation and UnLtd are inviting anyone who is interested in helping older people to register for an open event where they can discuss their ideas and learn more about available funding.

The networking session, which is free of charge and includes a complimentary light lunch, is being held on Wednesday, September 27 from 12:30pm – 5:00pm at the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton, and aims to provide help, support and guidance to anyone in Devon or Somerset who is thinking of setting up a project for older people in their local community.

Social enterprises, local charities and voluntary groups who are already running a project of this kind, and might be looking to grow their initiative, are also welcome. 

There will also be the opportunity to have discussions with people from other groups who have received funding and are running existing projects helping older people in their community. 

You can book a place at this free event here or further details are available by contacting Devon Community Foundation on: 01884 235887 or email
