Exeter Community Growers
Exeter Community Growers is made up of community growing and gardening groups and individuals from all over the city. We put out a regular newsletter to share stories and images of projects, and publicise events and volunteer opportunities
Have greening news to share? Please email and tell us all about it. We are keen to hear what is happening in the City that is improving and celebrating our urban environment.
Exeter Community Food Network
The Exeter Community Food Network brings together groups/services offering free and low-cost food across the city. The network aims to better understand the provision offered; the needs and issues faced by the people using them; and collaborating and sharing experiences in addressing food need in Exeter. Take a look at the map, or at our directory to find out who is a member of this network.
Exeter Digital Inclusion Network
The Exeter Digital Inclusion Network is open to individuals or organisations with an interest in helping local residents to overcome barriers to digital inclusion; sharing knowledge of those in need; and offering potential solutions. Representatives from community spaces, GP practices, libraries and support charities have joined the network. This partnership has led to the recent launch of our Digital Buddy Volunteering campaign.
Community Centres Network
This network provides peer support opportunities for the managers, trustees and volunteers that run our multi-use community facilities across Exeter.
The Community Centres Network also organises guest speakers offering expertise on topics of interest to the network. For example, a representative of Exeter Community Energy shared their offer to provide energy efficiency drop-in events for local residents in order to help them address soaring utility bills.

Ward Stakeholders Lunches
We host several quarterly lunch meet-ups for wards in the City. It’s a great way for community leaders and councillors in a ward to get together for networking and sharing news. Currently these are being held in Beacon Heath, St Thomas and Pinhoe.
