The Forum started in 2014. It allows community groups to meet with other similar associations and local councillors. This is to help address community issues related to development and growth.
The council has supported the Community Forum to develop a Community Strategy for the city. The Community Strategy promotes and helps communities to be part of organisations that tackle their needs and represent their interests.
With further support from the council, the Forum has set up a Grass Roots Grants panel. This considers applications from community groups for support to develop resources and projects to help address local needs.
Full details about the Forum, the Community Strategy and the Grass Roots Grants can be found on the exetercommunityforum.net website.
