People and businesses across Mid Devon are responding with amazing energy, and community spirit to the challenges we face. While we must look after our own health and that of our families and friends, among our community there will be those vulnerable and in real need of material and psychological support, particularly during isolation at home.

Community contacts list

The latest list of community support groups across Mid Devon can be found below. For all other parishes, please contact Age UK Mid Devon on 01884 255369 in the first instance.

We'll update this list regularly as more information becomes available. The links provided may re-direct to a third party website. We cannot guarantee the information contained within them, so please exercise your own due-diligence and best judgement when using the help on offer.

How can I get my community group added to this list?

If you're involved in a group and want to add it to the list below, please email covid19.support@middevon.gov.uk.

I want to setup a new group. What guidance is there?

If you're setting up a group, information about good practice, particularly around data protection and safeguarding can be found at Covid Mutual Aid UK.

There’s also a useful article about data protection for community groups on the information commissioner’s website, which you might be useful.

For more advice on setting up a group, speak to Karen Nolan at INVOLVE Voluntary Action in Mid Devon, by emailing: office@involve-middevon.org.uk.

What funding is there to support community action?

Devon Count Council has launched the COVID-19 Prompt Action Fund to help provide valuable funding to organisations working in their local communities during this outbreak. It can be used to help voluntary and community groups with issues like safely delivering food and medicine to vulnerable people, supporting people to access online information and services, and starting virtual support groups to help people stay connected.
