Headlight in Sidmouth 

Headlight is a mental health support project for 13-24 year olds in Sidmouth. The well-established service managed by local charity Action East Devon has been working in Axminster and Ottery St Mary for some time. Funding to work in Sidmouth was secured from Sid Valley Help and their many supporters. 

Ben Feasey, Headlight Manager said  “We are currently offering a mixture of virtual and face to face work support to young people in Sidmouth. We have been working closely with colleagues at the Sidmouth Youth Centre to make sure we can use the venue for group sessions and individual support meetings in a safe way."  

If you would like more information about Headlight please contact Ben Feasey on headlight@actioneastdevon.org.uk. AED are now taking referrals via the online form on the website www.actioneastdevon.org.uk
