Grant Award from Devon Community Foundation

Mon 22 October 2012, Category: Press Release

Devon Community Foundation have awarded us £3,000 from the Comic Relief Communities Fund to train volunteers to support families in financial difficulties through advice and signposting thereby enabling them to maximise their incomes and opportunities. 

The grant will ensure Home-Start South Hams, Plymouth and Tavistock can continue with their vital work across an area which is a mix of very rural and urban, with high levels of unemployment, low incomes and a reliance on seasonal work and poor transport infrastructures leading to high levels of deprivation.

Andrea Chandler, Scheme Manager said "This grant will make a huge difference to people living in the local area - Thank you Devon Community Foundation"

Laura Hewitt from DCF added " We are delighted to be able to support this fantastic group.  It is groups like this working on the frontline that are so essential to our communities.  It's what makes DCF so important to ensure that together with donors and local groups we can build strong and vibrant communities for everyone in Devon, both now and for the future."
