Young Devon

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.
