One Northern Devon is promoting person-centred approaches that join up support around people.  Our Flow Programme is our flagship approach to this way of working and aims to transform the way services support people with multiple or complex needs.

The Home from Hospital Project aims to use a network of volunteers to reduce the fear and anxiety that vulnerable patients feel when they are discharged and return home after a hospital stay.

One Northern Devon in conjunction with one of the key partners, Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust, have been inspired to build on the brilliant community response to the Covid-19 pandemic where members of the community supported those with no support network around them.

Social prescribing is an example of the person-centred work that One Northern Devon promotes. There has been an inequity of access to a social prescribe within the communities of North Devon and Torridge for many years. There has been a patchwork of provision, some of it voluntary, some of it publicly funded but no overall sight of everything that is available, nor a mechanism to compare models or outcomes.

In response to this One Northern Devon has created two structures – the OND Communities Group and the OND Social Prescribing Network.
