Welcome to Weymouth Information Shop

The shop is currently closed.

The lease on the Information Shop has come to an end and we were unable to secure enough funding to be able to commit to a further lease period, therefore we have closed down in our current location.

The Shop has provided valuable services to residents and businesses in Weymouth, and supported outreach work from support providers from all over Dorset. Voluntary and community organisations, health services, and local authority services, as well as Weymouth Town Council activities have all found a home at the WIS over the time it has been opened. They’ve been able to provide services and support to people in Weymouth in a location that was easily accessible.

Our amazing staff and volunteers have signposted residents to support of all kinds – from advice and guidance about financial issues, to care needs, carers support, recreational events and activities, and services to help people live well at home. We’ve also distributed thousands of bus timetables, event guides and local information leaflets.

We are hugely grateful to everyone who has supported us over the years that the shop has been open; our team, our sponsors, and our partners.

Although the shop in St Mary's Street is now closed, we are in discussion with another nearby social enterprise in Weymouth about locating the Information Shop in their venue. If all goes well, we hope to reopen in our new home very soon. Further news about the move will be published on our website here and we hope to welcome people back to a reopening in our new home very soon.
