About this cause

Open Daw provides an informal information and advice service, signposting clients to the agencies that can assist them to access information online, and also provides free drop in facilities for them to meet with various services. We also share publicity for local groups and events. We offer a safe space where people can buy a hot drink, chat to our volunteers and feel engaged and supported.

How this cause brings people in the community together

We have been working with the Town Council and other local organisations to provide a coordinated community response, helping Dawlish with transport, food parcels, activity packs, advice and support. Open Daw maintains the project website and social media with relevant information. We will continue to work alongside others in this way to help rebuild the community and support recovery.
