One Barnstaple is one of a number of “One Communities” across Northern Devon, all linking in various ways to One Northern Devon.
Better and more equitable health and wellbeing for the people and communities of Northern Devon
One Northern Devon supports the development of seven ‘One Communities’ across North Devon & Torridge (Northern Devon), including six towns, one village and the surrounding area. Helping to bring together a cross-sector partnership that focus on the wider determinants of health and wellbeing (the building blocks of a good life) to help build safer, fairer, more cohesive and resilient communities.
Recognising that health services have only a 10% overall impact on residents health, the One communities were established as local cross-sector partnerships united by a common vision of Better and more equitable health and wellbeing for the people and communities of Northern Devon. As the people that best understand communities are those that live and work in them, the One Communities bring together local organisations and groups together to work on things that matter to the community.
