Support With the Cost of Living

We are using government funding to support the most vulnerable households in West Devon with the cost of living.

The Household Support Fund is being used to help those across the Borough who need it most.

Eligible residents can apply for the Household Support Fund here

Some of the other ways we are using the Household Support Fund to help residents includes: 

  • Supporting single people in receipt of Council Tax Support who aren’t in receipt of any other benefits.
  • Supporting carers, that are in receipt of Council Tax support or Council Tax Carers Discount.
  • Working with SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity to support local veterans.
  • Providing additional support to local foodbanks.

If you find yourself struggling with the cost of living, please visit our support directory here.

Let's Talk About Dog Control



We want to hear your thoughts about dog control across West Devon.

Have your say on the control of dogs within the Borough. Where they are allowed to go, be on a lead, access and restrictions and of course dog fouling.

Our consultation closes on Tuesday 14 November.
