  • Rural isolation and access to services
  • Providing services for people ages over 60
  • Improving services for young people aged 8-19
  • Helping regenerate and improve the market towns of Cullompton, Tiverton and Crediton
  • Assisting residents adapt to the new welfare benefits system of Universal Credits
  • Activities that will help an organisation become more financially sustainable
  • Improved services and resources for the most deprived parts of the district.

If you’ve got a project that doesn’t appear to meet this criteria, we’d still like to hear from you. Please contact our Grants and Funding Officer, Paul Tucker, in the first instance on 07967 179666 or by email at ptucker@middevon.gov.uk .
