We support communities to develop projects and organise events to reduce waste and promote sustainable living in Mid-Devon and Teignbridge. We provide direct support to community organisations as well as linking groups in the growing CAG Devon network to share skills, resources and ideas.
Projects include food surplus cafes, repair cafes, clothes swaps, composting workshops and skill share events helping people to share, swap, mend, reduce, re-use and recycle.
Whether you are an existing community group or would like to set up a new group in your area, we can help you with:
day to day support
media and publicity
seed funding (for new groups)
monitoring tools to measure your impact so you can show how you are helping the environment and people
case studies and inspiration

Kerry joined the CAG Project in July 2017 from Earth Trust (an environmental learning charity) where she held the posts of Head of Learning and Head of Research and Skills. Kerry has a rich and diverse background of community engagement, education, learning, skills training, lecturing in Environmental Sustainability, and environmental research – as well as practical land management. For more details see Kerry’s full bio. As Community Engagement Manager, Kerry’s focus is to support the sustainable development of the Community Action Group network – including diversifying funding streams – to help springboard the incredible (and constantly evolving) array of community-led climate change action the CAG network has generated. Kerry is split two days across CAG Devon, developing national CAG network opportunities, and directing our education and learning programmes and opportunities nationally for Resource Futures.
The CAG Devon project is managed by Resource Futures and funded by Devon County Council.
