Running a business is stressful at the best of times. Running a business during a pandemic is even harder. Listening Ear is a new service for Devon businesses that offers people a safe space to chat about those challenges on the telephone.

We’re not here to offer business advice; we’re here to provide a friendly, impartial listening ear so you can talk about whatever you feel you need to. 

Our experienced volunteers will provide a supportive ear and will also be able to signpost you to other services if you need them.

Your wellbeing is important to both your health and your work life. Talking to one of our Listening Ear volunteers is a way for you to prioritise your mental wellbeing, especially when you may not feel comfortable talking to your friends and family about things.

If you would like to find out more about talking to our Listening Ear volunteers, please visit, contact [email protected] or call 01392 248919. 

Listening Ear is funded by Devon County Council and has been developed in partnership with Devon Communities Together. It is initially a pilot until March 2021, with the possibility of being extended and expanded in the future.
