Social Innovation through Partnership


Under advice we have taken the difficult decision to close CoLab to minimise the risk of cross infection from Monday 23rd March until further notice.

For anyone that might need to get in touch with us, we are currently maintaining a presence in the building for essential key working staff and we are able to answer phone enquiries if you call during office hours. If we are not able to answer your call leave a message and someone will try and get back to you.

This is a dynamic situation, and we are all adjusting our support offer in line with advice and need.  Please be patient, we will re-open as soon as it is safe and practical to do so.

If you wish to speak to someone from probation please go to Brittany House, New North Road, EX4 4EP (Tues and Thurs 10am - 2pm ONLY) or phone 01392 474200

Stay well and keep connected, from the CoLab team

Colab Exeter is an integrated wellbeing and innovation hub that works in collaboration with agencies across sectors to strengthen local services and achieve positive whole community outcomes around homelessness, addiction, (re)offending, and health inequality. 

Collectively, our work focuses on the following four themes:


Working towards sustainable, whole-person recovery from drug or alcohol dependence, or from mental ill-health


Supporting the homeless and vulnerably housed towards affordable and sustainable housing solutions and reconnecting people who have become socially isolated


Promoting rehabilitation into the community for those on the justice pathway


Promoting health and wellbeing as a tool for informing better lifestyle choices, and improving individual resilience and recovery
