Community Grants are available for local non-profit making community and voluntary organisations that provide services to the local community and contribute to the aims of Devon County Council’s Access Fund bid and subsequent programme of projects.

This grants scheme, managed by Travel Devon and Devon County Council, seeks applications from charitable, community and voluntary groups in support of active travel and wellbeing.

Grants are available to community and voluntary organisations residing or located within Devon (excluding Plymouth and Torbay), that would like to:

  • enhance or improve sustainable travel equipment and/or facilities for individuals or group activities (for example, hiring recumbent bicycles, hiring bicycles for led rides or holding ‘fix your bike’ sessions)
  • develop and expand local walking or cycling maps
  • increase participation or the number of members in led walks or rides (for example, walking groups, family cycle rides or other active travel activities such as walking buses to sports clubs)
  • fund innovations or new events requiring initial support (i.e. regular community Dr Bike sessions).
