Young people

Welcome to the Atkinson family. We know you may be feeling worried about coming to Atkinson, but it is not a prison; it’s a children’s home and staff don’t wear uniforms.

Our role is to look after you and positively support you through this challenging period. You’ll meet young people from different backgrounds and cultures at Atkinson and will be treated equally and cared for.

You may have concerns about why you or other young people have come to Atkinson. Whatever the reason, we’ll look after you and keep you safe. We want to make your stay with us as positive as we can.

The Pledge is a list of promises that we are making to all children and young people in care in Devon. It also tells the adults who work with children in care what they should be doing to support you.
