Why choose Devon?

Devon certainly has a lot to offer, with stunning coastlines, breath-taking countryside, unique moorland landscapes, high performing schools, thriving cities, and vibrant local communities. But for all its virtues, we know through our work that life in Devon can be difficult for some people. All the challenges, all the problems, all the risk factors you have seen and worked with elsewhere – they are here too.

We recognise that we can't deliver on our commitment to the people of Devon on our own, no matter how good we are! Only by continuing to focus on working together effectively with partners, and developing better support at a local level to provide the early help many children and families need, will we see the positive outcomes we all strive so hard to achieve.
