Support our work

donateVolunteer, donate or work for us.

You can make a difference changing the odds in favour of young people across the county, by donating your time, talents or money - or join the team if a professional vacancy appeals to you!


Making a donation

category support donateWe need your support and every penny is invaluable.

Young Devon needs to raise £2.5m each year to support its work.

In the last year Young Devon:

  • delivered 13500 sessions with young people;
  • put a roof over the head of 200 young vulnerable people every night;
  • gave advice and support to 2400 young people through our network of YES Centres across Devon;
  • delivered over 4000 hours of counselling to 700 young people.

As an example of how far your money can go, just £5 a month will give a year's respite care to one of the 320 young carers supported by Young Devon. A donation of just £35 will give an hour of our award winning R'n'B support for a young person at risk.

You can give online, by text or through payroll; whichever way you chose your donations will have a massive impact on the young people we work with.  

A minimum of 80p in every pound donated will be spent on helping us change the odds in favour of young people.

So if you have administration skills, youth work skills, counselling skills, building skills, marketing skills, IT skills and have some time that you can offer Young Devon would be delighted to hear from you.
