Coronavirus (Covid-19): CHAT Update (August 2021)

We’re working hard to continue serving the Mid Devon Community. However we have had to make some changes to how we do that in light of the coronavirus and the government advice. These changes are all to help keep everyone safe. 

We’ve had to make the hard decision to close the reception area for the time being. This means you cannot drop in for an enquiry and we are not able to offer showers, or do washing, or sadly offer a coffee and a chat. We are not able to open again at the moment as we need the space for appointments. 

If you are dropping off donations for the foodbank – thank you.  Please ring the doorbell at our drop off point and we will move it into the foodbank. 
 If you would like to see our latest shortages please follow our Facebook page or see here for more information 


If you need food you can call us on 0800 059 0104 (freephone) or 01884 255606 between 10:00 – 12:00 Monday – Friday and we will chat about what we can do to help (you no longer need a ‘voucher’ from another agency). 

We are not able to deliver any food at the moment so we will arrange a time slot when you call. This is to keep everyone as safe as possible and to help us manage the demand.  See here for more information about our foodbank and the help it can offer

Support and Advice

Our Support and Advice team are still available if you need help with any housing issue or help with debt and money. Our advisors are fully updated on the latest changes so please call if you need help.  We can also offer a limited number of face to face appointments and home visits. All staff have been trained in infection control and we will do whatever we can to minimise risk and help you feel safe. 

More details about the sort of things we can help with can be found here

You can contact us or phone 0800 059 0104/01884 255606.

We are open Monday – Friday 9:30–4:30
