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.
