OPCC Grants awarded

In July, thanks to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), Devon Community Foundation (DCF) was able to launch two new grant schemes focusing on crime prevention and anti-social behaviour that included a focus on community recovery from Covid-19.

Both received high levels of interest, and the panel was eager to meet this week and respond – finding the most fitting candidates for over £90,000 of funding, some of which was collected from the sale of items recovered under the Police Property Act

DCF and the OPCC have since been delighted to be able to contact 25 successful Devon organisations with news of an award and that funding will cover a wide spectrum of work that includes:

Thank you so much - this is great news and will make a huge difference to our work and our community.“

SAFE Foundation, Exeter

We would like to congratulate all the groups involved and wish them well as they embark on or continue their important work to keep our communities safe and well.

Community groups and organisations: Don’t forget the DCF Community Grant scheme remains open throughout the year for applications of up to £2,000 that help support, encourage and develop thriving communities. Find out how to apply here.
