The Axminster Hub

Drug and alcohol recovery project offering support to over 18s who wish to address their drug or alcohol use.

The Axminster Hub meets every Tuesday at Pippins and is a safe, friendly, and welcoming space.


Tuesdays 10.00am – 12.30pm - Quiet space for people in recovery for appointments, food and access to support

Tuesdays 12.30pm - 2.00pm - Drop-in recovery café – if people are concerned about their alcohol and/or drug use, they can pop in for food, support and a conversation about self-referral.


Founded in 2016, The Axminster Hub is a three-way partnership between Together Devon East & Mid Team, Axminster Neighbourhood Police Team and the Local Churches Café Team Food and hospitality is at the heart of what we do.

You can access The Axminster Hub by popping in to the Pippins centre on a Tuesday between 12.30 and 2pm – access through the side patio doors.

You can have some lunch with us while you are here.

We also take referrals from partnership agencies such as our local GPs, and Axminster Police.​

The building is closed to the general public on Tuesdays to ensure a confidential environment for everyone attending.
