A useful focal point for Devon community services is the Pinpoint website,

Pinpoint is a free online directory of support and services available within Devon, providing information on advice services, care at home, staying healthy, social groups and much more. Pinpoint launched recently replacing the Devon Community Directory. Download their poster here.
