Welcome to the Global Centre

Upcoming Events

The informal World at Lunch discussion group continues every Thursday 1pm to 2pm when there is not a Special. 

To celebrate 20 years of DDE we have published a new brochure and have set ourselves a target to raise £100,000 to fund our work with schools and communities across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay over the next 3-5 years.

Over 70 Fairtrade supporters visited Sainsbury's stores across Devon on Saturday 28th October 2017 to send the message to Sainsbury's Head Office that Ditching the Fairtrade Mark is already causing hardship to tea growing cooperatives. Locations visited: Brixham, Dawlish, Exeter (4 stores), Newton Abbot, Ottery St Mary, Paignton, Plymouth (2 stores), Torquay, Totnes.

The Good Immigrant edited by Nikesh Shukla.

Bringing together 21 exciting black, Asian and minority ethnic voices emerging in Britain today, The Good Immigrant explores why immigrants come to the UK, why they stay and what it means to be ‘other’ in a country that doesn’t seem to want you, doesn’t truly accept you – however many generations you’ve been here – but still needs you for its diversity monitoring forms.

At last the hostel for blind and visually impaired pupils at Katente West Primary School in Mubende, Uganda, is almost finished!. There is an update in Sue Errington's report of the visit she made in September.But of course, now that the building itself is complete, the next focus is to complete building a block of latrines - and then furnish and equip it. To fund raise for this work, Tom Errington is running in the Great West Run on Sunday 15th October - please can you sponsor him.

‘This is one of the most innovative and exciting community projects to be found in the South West… Through its activities, it is a key player in Devon in celebrating cultural diversity and challenging injustice, both of which it does energetically and enthusiastically.’  Martyn Goss, Exeter Diocese
