The businesses of Exeter need the support of our community.

So many people, families and businesses have been affected by COVID-19 and the closures that were necessary for all of our safety. Support Exeter is a place for us to get together, find the best way to support our favourite local businesses and charities and do our bit to strengthen our community.

Support a Local Business

Under each tab below are our local businesses, those run by our friends, our families and our neighbours. Information on supporting these businesses is beside each. This might be leaving an online review, ordering online or sharing a referral. Each business has different needs and different ways you can help.
