Our history

Angelo, Jacky, Fran and Jenny. The Care for Kids trusteesCare for Kids North Devon came about as the result of the experiences of our four trustees. Having worked within children’s medical care or experienced long-term medical care for a child over many years, our trustees identified a need for support for local families. Due to North Devon’s rural location, very sick children are treated in the specialist children’s hospitals of Bristol and beyond. The cost of travel and staying over night for long periods of time puts extra stress and financial pressure on these families. Care for Kids North Devon was created to help relieve this financial worry. Find out more about what we do.
