Making a Child Friendly Devon

Wish for Devon

Our ambition is to create an even better place for children and young people to grow up in – a Child Friendly Devon.

We are engaging with a range of people to help shape the identity, including children and young people.

Survey for parents, carers and guardians

This survey has now closed. We will share a summary of your views on the current experience for children, young people and families growing up in Devon and what you thought of the three ideas created so far soon. Thank you for taking part, it is really important to us and will have a direct impact on the way we shape and develop the vision and visual identity for a Child Friendly Devon.

Activity for children of primary school age

We’re asking all children to show us how they would make where they live an even better place to grow up! They can respond in any creative way they choose – a picture, a story or poem, a video, whatever inspires them!
