NEW service: Devon Family Advice Line

Exeter Community Initiatives have a new phone advice line for parents and carers across Devon.

ECI will offer advice on specific issues around your children, and/or family relationships, including any communication issues or conflict you might be having with partners or co-parents of your children. While this isn’t a replacement for more targeted support, ECI can offer a place to be heard, discuss a few tips on how to deal with a particular situation, or signpost you to an organisation which may be able to give you more help.

Call 01392 949059, lines open 10am – 2pm weekdays.

Spiritual Wellbeing - here is a prayer you might find helpful at this time.
Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love
for your name's sake.
Father Robert asked us to share this link
with resources for children from the Diocese of Exeter.
