Young Devon is the largest young people’s charity in the South West. Our mission is simply to make Devon a better place for all young people.
We give straight-forward support for problems that young people might be facing. Young Devon has been offering help for over 20 years. Our staff are hugely experienced, will listen, help and never judge. With specialist Accommodation, Sexual Health and Counselling Teams, we have the resources that young people need to help young people come to terms with the challenges that they face.
If you are a young carer looking after a family member or friend who has a disability, mental health condition or addiction, you can get support by contacting Jessica Suddick from Bright Futures.

Welcome to Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services.
We offer services in Devon (but not Plymouth).

📞 01392 204 174
We believe that with the right support and help people with mental health issues can and do recover and live meaningful and purposeful lives of their own choosing. Since 2003 we have actively promoted this idea and sought to put recovery and wellbeing at the heart of mental health provision.
We enable carers to maintain their own health, wellbeing and independence; and to care safely, confidently and effectively. We provide carers with the information and advice they need in their caring role. We help carers find support in their community and from local community organisations. In everything we do we are led by carers, ensuring they have choice, control, and a voice as expert partners in care.

* Through ‘guided self-help’ we encourage you to develop your own coping strategies and support networks as you reduce your dependence on services. We provide information and resources, and run small group workshops in which you can practise techniques and learn from others.
* We offer ‘moral support’ to accompany you to appointments or introduce you to groups and activities; and in some cases, practical support to resolve a temporary issue that may hinder your progress.
