Open Door Exmouth has been at the heart of the Exmouth community since 1995. Having started through the local church as a twice weekly drop-in service for rough sleepers, our projects have evolved over the years to meet the growing needs of our community. We now operate as a multi-service charity, providing welcoming spaces and support across the age groups. We are motivated by the call to ‘love your neighbour’, seeking to make a difference in people’s lives. We are passionate about combating isolation and poverty, developing skills, promoting positive mental health and wellbeing, and compassionately supporting those most in need within the town.
