Movement with Communities – Our Work in Mid Devon

We are committed to working with partners, to achieve positive impact for people’s lives, in local places where multiple inequalities exist. We can do this by connecting, advocating and enabling people to move more.

Working Together to Achieve Systemic Change

By working together, we can overcome more challenges and find new ways to help people in the community be active.

Our Partnerships team are our community-based leads in designated localities across the county. They work together with local and national partners, organisations, groups, volunteers and activity providers. The community-based lead for Mid Devon is Tamsin Phelvin. You can contact Tamsin by emailing: Tamsin.Phelvin@activedevon.org.

We also have two members of our team who are actively engaging with local clubs and organisations across Devon, to explore ways they can provide support on welfare and safeguarding best practice. If you are part of a club or organisation and would like to have a chat to see how they can help you, please get in touch. Jason Wood is the contact for Mid Devon, and you can connect with him by emailing: Jason.Wood@activedevon.org.
