Why

One Northern Devon exists to improve the health and wellbeing of North Devon and Torridge residents by taking collaborative responsibility for ensuring the strategies and plans of local public and voluntary services are joined up and targeted to the needs of the population, offering a more seamless system of services that works better for residents.

How

We do this by creating an overview of the whole system of services in North Devon, working as a team on behalf of the system rather than purely in the interests of our individual organisations; translating national and regional policies into local strategies that suit North Devon; and supporting its communities to develop and implement local plans based on their individual needs and assets. We engage with our residents to better understand how to support them to be more independent.

What

We create a holistic plan that is focused on what’s right for of our population and our communities, particularly targeting our more vulnerable citizens and aiming to prevent the root causes of frailty and poor health
