Community Grants


Devonshire West Big Local has been running a successful Community Grants Scheme since 2015.

In that time we have run five funding rounds, worked with 50 different local community & voluntary groups and funded more than 60 different projects.

We run two grant rounds each year, one in the spring and one in the autumn, you can find out when our next round of grants will be open by visiting our main Grants & Funding page here.
