This site aims to provide important information to parents and carers, children and young people and professionals who work with them.

Welcome to the Devon Children and Families Partnership (DCFP). The DCFP has responsibility for coordinating and scrutinising the effectiveness of services being delivered to children and young people in Devon.

Although much work has been done to help children and young people be safe from harm and abuse, there is still more to be done to ensure that all children and young people continue to be safe from harm or neglect and to have all the opportunities available to them to reach their full potential.

The DCFP depends on everyone, whether professionals, volunteers, parents, or members of the public having an understanding of their own personal or professional responsibility to safeguard children.

This site aims to provide information to parents and carers, children and young people and professionals who work with them. The site will be maintained and updated on a regular basis to ensure the information contained within it reflects the best possible information that is available.
