We are delighted to be one of the local organisations delivering the ‘Winter Pressure Equality and Diversity Fund ‘. We will be working alongside local organisations in delivering the Devon County Council Covid Outbreak Management fund. The funds are designed to help Devon communities in “Getting Ready for Winter” and are available now.
The funding will support people who have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19. Including BAME communities, rough sleepers, and those who are having to self-isolate (classed as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable). Also people with protected characteristics, people from deprived communities, people who are digitally excluded, and people living in rural communities. The funding will also action research on identifying and tackling rural health inequalities in Devon.
Working in partnership with a voluntary sector alliance, made up of ourselves, Devon Communities Together, DeVA, and the VSA organisations. These include Citizens Advice, Devon Communities Together, Young Devon, Devon MIND, Dimensions for Autism, Hikmat, Intercom Trust and Plymouth & Devon Racial Equality Council.
