Let's get chatting campaign 2023

This campaign is about to re commence and is looking for your help! If you live in Devon and are soon to be a parent or have a child aged 0-5 years, the campaign team would love you to help them understand your views around children’s speech, language and communication. 

A child’s ability to communicate with the special people around them is one of the most important things they learn in the first few years of their life.

Parents play a really big part in helping their children learn to communicate and talk. We want to understand how parents see their role of supporting their children’s communication, where they might go to find information and support and what they are already doing that has been helpful.

If you are a parent living in Devon and you have a child aged 0-5 years, or you are expecting a baby in the coming months, please help us by answering a few questions about supporting your child’s communication development.

You can find the questions here: Let’s Get Chatting 2023

You can also get all the latest Let get chatting updates.

Look out for the ‘Let’s Get Chatting’ social media campaign over the coming months for more information to support your child’s developing communication.

Devon County Council runs a confidential secure text messaging service for parents of children aged 0-19 years called ChatHealth. The service operates Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a public health nurse (health visitor/school nurse) within 24 hours. Outside of the service working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the line reopens. You can also call our Public Health Nursing hubs on the numbers listed below.

If you are concerned about the safety of a child in Devon, contact our Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0345 155 1071 or email with as much information as possible.
