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
