5 ways to help


Community Action Response: COVID-19

Exeter City Council and Wellbeing Exeter are committed to working together to provide practical help and support for local people to get through this outbreak.

There are already many great examples of people coming together to look out for each other. We want to nurture this and do all we can so that neighbourhoods have as much help as they need to look after each other and get help and support to those likely to need it most.

We have set up Exeter Community Wellbeing to assist individuals and community groups to help and support each other during this challenging time.

We have online and telephone hotlines so we can gather information from people and organisations who want to offer their help and support to the community response. We will then share this with individuals who need information about the support on offer.


This is a light touch "matching" service linking people who need help with local people and groups.

Please contact us using the forms, or phone number below, if you are:

  • A resident who would like practical support because you are self-isolating because of Coronavirus

  • Caring for, or are aware of someone, who would benefit from practical support because of Coronavirus

June 2020 update: For People and organisations offering support, we thank you for your kind offer. However, we are pausing 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.

If you would like to keep in touch please send an email to the Exeter Community Wellbeing to
