Are you ready to be a part of something greater, making a lasting impact in the lives of school children and our community?

Our Schools Support Network welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds and roles to contribute their time, talents, and passion to our noble cause. We particularly welcome existing school staff members, church Youth and Family Workers, Church leaders, and those who are passionate about young people.

Our Schools Support Network is made up of the Schools Support Team which is our in-house team, LiNX Youth Trust who work in Secondary Schools, Nova Street who offer detached youth work and after school sessions, and ICE Torbay who lead RE lessons within primary schools.

We work closely with Torbay Council, the Police and Exeter Diocese and the different education establishments.

Together, we can create a safer, more supportive environment for our children, embodying the spirit of community and compassion. Join our network and be a part of this transformative journey.

We are committed to breaking down cultural, generational, racial and socioeconomic barriers to cultivate spaces and places of safety and belonging.

We want to be a part of the process to wholeness, completeness and wellbeing of those within our school communities, with God’s love and grace underpinning all we do. Our volunteers are trained to listen, encourage, de-escalate situations and to be a positive role model to the young generation. We are all DBS checked and work closely with the Police, schools and other partners as part of the safer travel partnership. You are welcome to join us.
