Welcome to Open Daw – Dawlish Community Information Centre

👉👉Open Daw is currently running a review of our services, if you have any feedback or thoughts do take a look at our Open Daw Survey 2020_web 


Open Daw provides an informal information and advice service for the local community, signposting clients to the agencies and organisations that can help them, and providing regular, free ‘drop in’ facilities for them to meet with various services such as local Councillors, the Royal British Legion, Cancer Support and many more.

We also offer an area in which people can sit in a safe space, get a friendly welcome from our volunteers, buy a low cost hot drink, engage with others and feel supported. On a day to day basis our Coordinators help people to access information online, for example to contact the Council or their energy or benefits providers with queries or issues.


We work with local organisations to display publicity materials for events and groups. Our Coordinators can then signpost clients to activities that might be suitable or helpful for them, such as a Bereavement Support group, Community Transport outings or a women’s social club.

With a friendly welcome we provide a safe haven and friendly place for those who need some company or support. Have a look at the links above for more information…

Why not pop in to see what we do? A warm welcome awaits you and we are dog friendly too!
