About us

Free support and advice

Making a difference in your community? We are here to help! 

Exeter Connect provides free support and professional advice to help the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in Exeter develop and thrive.

The sector is an essential part of Exeter’s social and economic well-being. Exeter Connect is uniquely placed to support this vital sector to reach its potential.

“It’s great to know that there are people locally with the knowledge and expertise to help us when the need arises.”

– Nigel, St Leonard’s Neighbourhood Association
