The Recovery Devon Development Fund was set-up to help small projects who might never have applied for funding before, who only needed small amounts of money or who were unable to apply for other funding.
Open for amounts up to £750, the fund is simple to apply for, and enables projects which create opportunities for recovery in Devon.
First offered in 2015, our fund has so far helped deliver photography, art workshops, therapeutic gardens, animation, PTSD support groups and much more.
Our board offer light-touch mentoring to help people in their applications and the running of projects. The fund runs once per-year, with first stage applications due in February.
