St Sidwell’s is a small charity that works hard to support the local community and to encourage participation and civic engagement. We want to help make Exeter a better place to live for everybody and a lot of our work focuses on providing opportunities for people facing barriers and disadvantage. Participants in our Volunteering and Work-Placement Programme last year included people with learning disabilities, people with a history of mental ill-health, ex-offenders, people with a history of drug and/or alcohol dependency, the homeless and people seeking to improve their English language skills.

At St Sidwell’s everyone works together.
