Welcome to SUSU: Get Started

Welcome to ‘Stand Up Speak Up’ – the website for children in care and care leavers in Devon

The participation team built this website with children and young people who have real lived experience of care services. We aim to help you get to the information, advice and guidance that you want and need. Take the opportunity to use the site to tell us what you think about what’s important to you.  Use it as well to tell us how well we at Devon County Council are doing. Knowing these things will help us to make sure you are getting the best possible service from us.

We develop and update the pages based on what you tell us you want. How do you want to stay in touch with us? Use our pages as a way for you to hear how what you are saying is making a difference. Find out how we are listening to you and what we are doing about the issues you raise.

Some of the things we have done already are:

                 make the website mobile friendly

            design a new logo

             have some games

We would like to do lots more. Developing the site based on what you say is important.

So, have a look at what’s here and tell us what you think about it, or let us know if you would like to get involved, by contacting us using the details here.

from all of us at ‘Stand Up, Speak Up’, Devon’s Children in Care Council, and the Participation Team.

Keeping safe when using the internet is really important, visit the Devon Children and Families Partnership for more information on how you can stay safe here and remember if you are worried you can call Childline 0800 1111 or dial 999 if you need help right away.
