The Project is part of Action East Devon a Company Limited by Guarantee registered in England (number 07035905) and registered as a charity in England & Wales (number 1134611). Action East Devon run and support a number of projects and services aimed at improving quality of life in East Devon. The practical support we get from Action East Devon saves us time and money so we can focus our efforts on supporting those who need us most.
Based in Axminster and Chard, The Project provides unique group-based early intervention support for young people aged 13-24 experiencing mental health issues, and their parents and carers.
