Join us!

The Beacon is run by an energetic group of people who like to make things happen.  Our volunteers start at age 17 and we have a few in their 70s.

We opened in May 2015 and we’ve already won the Pride of Exeter Best Community Centre Award!

We’ve also:

  • Hosted the first ever job fair in Beacon Heath, working closely with Business in the Community
  • Organised popular family fun days, working closely with local councillors
  • Hosted two successful Christmas fairs, getting local people together and enabling hundreds of children to see Santa.
  • Held a wonderful community drop-in Christmas party
  • Worked successfully with local organisations to establish new groups at the centre
  • Co-hosted two Beacon Heath Summer Fetes

We’re a busy volunteering team and are always looking for more like-minded people to join us. If you believe in community, want to make new friends, and have some spare time, then pop in for a chat.There’s always lots to do here – you won’t get bored. We’d love help with staffing reception, administration, setting up our community drop-in sessions, maintenance, IT Support and applying for grants.

If you want to get involved the best way is to come and have a chat over a drink, our Friday morning drop-in is an ideal chance to get a feel for the place, give us a call on 01392 204979 or use the contact form here.
