Our members

Everyone living and working in Exeter is welcome to inform the development of and support the Community Strategy.

Community led organisations, local Councillors (City and County) and organisations that support them are welcome to join the Forum.

This is how it works:

Community-led associations that serve a defined geographical area within Exeter are welcome to join as Full members. These groups are:

  • those that are most likely to have an interest in community development and planning matters.
  • ‘umbrella’ organisations and play a role in supporting other community groups,
  • have members from the community or other community groups, and
  • maybe owning and/or running community facilities.

The Exeter City Councillor with the portfolio responsibility for communities and culture is a full member of the Forum. ECF members are encouraged to work with and invite local Councillors in their ward to attend as non-voting associate members.

Other local statutory and voluntary sector organisations with a specialism in supporting community development may be invited to contribute or join the Forum as Associate members.
