in North Devon
Welcome to Fullabrook CIC
We are a grant giving organisation based in North Devon that offers funding support to local charities, voluntary and community group, sports clubs and other not-for-profit organisations with projects that benefit the residents living in the area surrounding the Fullabrook Wind Farm (primarily the 13 parishes closest to the wind farm - Ashford, Berrynarbor, Bittadon, Braunton, East Down, Georgeham, Heanton Punchardon, Ilfracombe, Marwood, Mortehoe, Shirwell, West Down, and West Pilton).
We aim to support activities or projects that focus on energy efficiency, energy conservation or development of renewable energy resources; sustainable transport schemes; affordable recreation; community safety; and such other facilities and amenities as will benefit the local residents or any other activity for the benefit of the community.
Fullabrook CIC was set up in 2011 to administer a Community Fund established by Devon Wind Power Ltd, who own the Fullabrook Wind Farm. Although the funding is derived from Devon Wind Power Ltd, we operate entirely independently from it, and its parent company, ESB Wind Development UK Ltd.
The Fund started with £1 million when the wind farm began generating electricity in 2011, and a further annual payment of £100,000 is received from Devon Wind Power (now owned by ESB Energy) each year that the wind farm generates power. From formation to the end of 2022, Fullabrook CIC has given 478 grants and invested £1,562,203 in the local community.
