Communities Fund

'Just Do It' Small Grants Fund - still open!

For all Dartmoor parishes (excluding Ashburton, Buckfastleigh and Cheriton Bishop), 'Just Do It' grants of no more than £500 are available for environmental works.  Applications to the ‘Just Do It’ small grants scheme will be determined within 4 weeks and it is ideal for when communities just need a small amount of cash to do works themselves to improve their communities natural or built environment or to improve public access to it. 

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your project or application, please contact Jo Rumble, Dartmoor Communities Officer on 01626 832093 or email

Look on our 'Supporting Communities' page for information on other sources of funding and advice.   

The Dartmoor Communities Fund 2018/19  

The Dartmoor Communities Fund offered grant support to communities across much of Dartmoor (West Devon, South Hams and Teignbridge excluding Ashburton & Buckfastleigh).  Unfortunately, in the face of tightening budgets we have been unable to open the main grant scheme to applications this year.  

If you would like to see what projects received funding in previous years, then look on the Dartmoor Communities Fund 2014/15 ,  Dartmoor Communities Fund 2015/16, Dartmoor Communities Fund 2016/17 and Dartmoor Communities Fund 2017/18 pages.
