Wellbeing resources

The Link Academy Inclusion and Improvement Hub have put together a pack to support mental wellbeing at home. The pack begins by exploring how we can connect and support ourselves as adults so that then we can feel better equipped to support our children.

We hope you will find this a useful resource to share with your families. You can also access the Facebook page which you can find by searching: @inclusionhubdevon. They will be posting regular updates with ideas and activities that support parents and children’s mental health.

Devon Family Advice Line

ECI will be launching a new phone advice line for parents and carers across Devon on Monday 1 June. The number for the new service is 01392 949059 and it will be manned from 10 – 2pm Monday to Friday. People will be able to leave a message outside of these hours, or when the operators are all busy.

It will offer advice on a specific issue around their children and their family relationships, including any communication issues or conflict they are having with their partners or co-parents of their children. It is not meant to be a replacement for more targeted work, but just a way to offer people a place to be heard and a few tips on how to deal with a particular situation or to signpost them to an organisation which may be able to help them.
