We are a voluntary and community sector service funded by Exeter City Council, providing support and advice to help community groups in Exeter.
Our mission is to provide free, independent, professional and practical support to existing and new community organisations in the city to help them develop and become self-sustaining.
Our vision is for Exeter to be a place where residents, community groups and organisations can grow and thrive in order to make a difference to their lives and the lives of their communities.
We can support you with any query relating to the development of your organisation including:
“Exeter Connect have taken time to support us to grow from a not–for–profit group into a community interest company. They have provided professional guidance and given us clear direction to better support Wood for Good Exeter CIC and the community to thrive.”
– Tony, Wood For Good Exeter CIC
Our Development Workers work closely alongside the Exeter Community Builders. The Community Builders work at a neighbourhood level to build confident, more connected communities by identifying and mapping community assets, listening to residents and improving links between local people and organisations. If you haven’t already been in touch with your Community Builder.
If you have an idea that you would like to discuss, we would love to hear from you!
