Community Development Fund 2022

Our Community Development Fund for 2022 is now open for applications!

We are now accepting applications for this years Community Development Fund. This fund is for anyone who is passionate about creating opportunities for recovery, in interesting and ‘out of the box’ ways. We welcome any innovative, recovery-focused project ideas that would benefit from a small amount of financial support.

We can fund between £50 to £750 per project. Project leads can also make use of our community development expertise. We offer light-touch mentoring, as well as a little more hand-holding if needed to start you off.

We encourage those with lived experience of mental health struggles to apply, especially if it’s something that will also help your own recovery. You do not need to have had any experience with running projects before, if this is your first venture in setting up something in your community then we can offer connections and resources to help.

We’ve also been strengthening our close partnership with the Devon Recovery Learning Community and many of the projects we have supported in the past have gone on to create new courses.

If you would like to apply then please download the application form and guidance notes here.

If you would like some further guidance then please get in touch with the Community Development Worker in your area. The CDW team will also be doing some drop in days for face to face support on applications (if the restrictions at the time allow).
