About Us

The Hub Store opened in 2019 and is operated by Dawlish Community Aid Registered Charity 1183827, who help disadvantaged, vulnerable people in hardship in the Dawlish area by providing them with essential furniture, household items, clothes, childrens items and more.

We provide community support in collaboration with 'Helping Dawlish' and 'ROC Dawlish'

We work with 'Dawlish Community Larder' to help provide food and other essentials to those in need.

The Hub Store also serves to provide a community space where children can play and parents can meet, chat, have a complimentary coffee, use our WiFi and browse items on sale.

Through the generosity of people donating and with the funds we raise from selling goods we are able to support people, by providing essential furniture and household items such as a bed... table... chair... saucepans... plates etc.
We can also provide items for children where their carer cannot afford to buy a bed...clothes...toys...books etc.

We proudly partner with ROC (Redeeming Our Communities). ROC’s main aim is to bring about community transformation by creating strategic partnerships between statutory agencies, voluntary groups and churches. https://roc.uk.com
