Council support during COVID
Devon’s district councils are providing various types of financial support for people on a low income or people whose income has reduced as a result of the pandemic. They are also running helplines for people who need urgent help with things like shopping or people who need support because they are lonely or isolated.
During the current coronavirus crisis, we're available online and over the phone across the county.
