'Let's Talk Teenagers'

‘Let's Talk Teenagers’ is a series of online support sessions that are an opportunity for parents and carers of teenagers to hear about the challenges young people are facing today.  These evening sessions will be running on consecutive weeks throughout June, and will discuss the tools parents and carers can use to support their children and community.

The project has been funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, the Safer Devon Partnership, South Devon and Dartmoor Community Safety Partnership and Teignbridge Council for Voluntary Service.

“Having run these sessions in March, we were overwhelmed by the feedback from parents who felt more equipped to support their teens.  We are pleased to be able to offer the sessions again to reach even more families and raise awareness of the risks young people face and provide tips on how to support them.”  - Rebecca Hewitt, Chair of South Devon and Dartmoor CSP.
