How did the Devon Grapevine start?

The Devon Grapevine is an Olive Tree Association project.

In 2009, the Safer Devon Partnership commissioned the Olive Tree Association to carry out the Community Safety Mapping Project (CSMP) in order to fins out about the needs and concerns of ‘harder-to-reach’ minority ethnic communities in Devon.

The CSMP involved interviews with more than 250 people from minority ethnic communities across rural Devon. Areas of concern raised by interviewees included health, crime and education.

Devon Grapevine was set up to help connect individuals with the services they need to make a better life in Devon.
