Community Action Response: COVID-19

In March 2020, Exeter City Council and Wellbeing Exeter set up Exeter Community Wellbeing to assist individuals and community groups to help and support each other during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Recent months have been a huge challenge and things will continue to be uncertain as we move to a new phase with COVID-19 but Exeter City Council and Wellbeing Exeter remain committed to working together to provide practical help and support for local people who are affected by the pandemic.


Ways we can support you

  • Food shopping & delivery for isolating households

  • Urgent prescription collection service

  • Access to Financial Support


Are you feeling lonely or worried about your wellbeing?

  • A Wellbeing Exeter Community Connector can work with you in the short-term, linking you to opportunities in the community or online to support your wellbeing, including to others who may be in a similar position. Contact us using the form or telephone number below and ask for a Wellbeing Exeter Community Connector referral.

  • Exeter City Community Trust are delivering a new programme "Tackling Loneliness Together" to help members of the community connect with each other for free. They are also instrumental in the front line deliveries to isolating households. You can find out more on their website.

October 2020 update: For people and organisations offering support, we thank you for your kind offer. However, we have paused new registrations as we have enough volunteers across the city for now. We may re-open this platform if there is increased demand from our communities and new volunteers are needed.
