Devon Link-Up

Devon Link-Up is a service user-led organisation for people with learning disabilities and autism who live in Devon.   

We aim to give people a voice and choice about the things that are important in their lives.

Devon Link Up offers a range of activities and services to encourage people to speak up and have a voice, including independent advocacy and speaking up groups.  Our groups meet monthly and provide access to an independent service where they can meet friends, discuss current issues and get involved with consultation and engagement.  

Devon Link Up understands the need for people to meet and have fun and our social groups offer various activities including skittles, walking, quiz and cinema nights.   

Our Chain of Events group meets in Newton Abbot on the first Saturday of the month. The Group chooses their activities which include art, drama, music, physical activity and chat; it is based on the well-being principle and provides a chance for people to meet their friends and have fun. 

 As part of our work with Devon and Cornwall Police, we help organise the Devon Blue Light Day and the Devon BASH awards. These are great events which encourage people to think about being Active, Healthy and Safe and provide opportunities to recognise the great things that people are doing. 

Devon Link Up provides easy read information and offer support to change information into accessible formats.

Heathfield Farm is a new project based in Broadclyst which will offer people the chance to learn new skills with a view to employment. We are developing land based skills, cooking, production and in the future, animal care.  We are delighted to be funded by the National Lottery and are working closely with the National Lottery. 

Devon County Council uses an SEND flag to list services which define themselves as suitable for children and young people with SEND. These are part of Devon's SEND Local Offer. We recommend that you contact the service provider to make sure the service is suitable for your child or young person.
