Welcome to South Hams Community Action

Group having a meeting

South Hams Community Action helps local voluntary and community groups to flourish. We are a support and development organisation, promoting and encouraging local voluntary activity. We do this by providing a range of services, often in partnership with other members of Devon Voluntary Action

We are a registered charitable company and staff mostly work from home across the South Hams area.

South Hams Community Action's team encourage voluntary and community activity, supporting groups in sharing knowledge and expertise, communities to find and deliver their own solutions, often in partnership, and individuals to access volunteering opportunities.
