Community emergency grants for new & old resilience groups across Devon

 

New groups that have been formed in response to the pandemic may wish to apply under scheme one to support costs associated with formalising the group into a community emergency planning group and creating a community emergency plan; a document that helps to plan your response and is shared with relevant local authorities and emergency services. We can also provide practical guidance, advice, and support around the creation of a community emergency planning group and writing a community emergency plan.


For questions and queries about grant applications please contact louise.macallister@devoncommunities.org.uk. For questions and queries about practical guidance and support in forming a community emergency planning group and writing an emergency plan please contact martin@devoncommunities.org.uk

Devon Highlights – Older people -Here to connect you during Covid-19

 

Devon Highlights is a community project led by Devon Communities Together, that supports older people (aged 55+) living in 6 areas of Devon, who may be at risk of loneliness and isolation. The project has put in place a number of measures to help ensure that older people are still able to access the support of this project throughout the Covid19 restrictions.

Please do share this information with those you know who may benefit from this. A one to one telephone service is now operating, for those people that do not have access to the internet or are unsure how to use digital devices.

Zoom is now being used to hold groups online, so that participants can still see each other in real time, and talk about activities they are doing. This is a great opportunity for anyone that is 55+ living in Devon who wants to get connected.


Devon Highlights is here to connect you in this time of isolation. For anyone who wants to get involved they can contact us on -
info@devoncommunities.org.uk, or via telephone: 01392 218919.

Devon County Council Clinical Commissioning Group

Please be advised that the CCG have made temporary changes to their operating times at some Minor Injuries Units because of having to sustain staffing levels.

Dawlish and Totnes Community Hospitals are now closed for minor injuries, so anybody requiring minor injury attention should now refer to the MIU at Newton Abbot Community Hospital.

This will ensure prioritisation for Torbay Hospital to deal with our very sickest and emergency patients.

We ask everybody to appreciate what our NHS are doing for everybody at this critical time.
