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
