We have the power to change our future, so let's do something about it

Every day selfless volunteers and community groups are out across Mid Devon delivering important services, looking after our environment, and helping people to live happier, healthier lives. We rely on their goodwill, but they are often poorly funded. Larger groups can access grants and borrow money. Smaller groups or individuals can’t access those same funds. As a result, many good projects fail to get funded or struggle to deliver their full potential.

What if small community groups and individuals who have the ideas to make a difference in their local community could access targeted grants, guidance and support?

That is where we step forward. Everybody should feel empowered to improve their communities. One Mid Devon brings together these ideas, generous donors, and project delivery experience.

Planting for Wildlife 2022

Inspiring our youth to plant for wildlife

It is not just our urban environments that are reducing the vital habitat for wildlife; our countryside habitats are also reducing at an alarming rate.  During Spring 2022 One Mid Devon is working with partners in the Tiverton area to provide a school and youth group outreach with the aim of discussing, inspiring and enabling children to learn how to plant to support wildlife.

Funds allocated: £5,000

Building a Sustainable Future 2022
