As Community Developers we are here to help improve our local communities health and wellbeing. Our role is to listen to the needs in our community and to help local people to develop projects which address these needs. We connect to community groups, mapping out what is currently available in your local area and ensuring that information is available to all.
Working with the community groups we can act as an advocate and voice representing them on wider stakeholder/steering groups. We can help new and existing community groups grow and remain sustainable. Assist with setting up new projects, source funding and governance.
We aim to build stronger communities by co-ordinating and linking activity between local provision and statutory services in wider Torridge and North Devon area. Supporting the Social Prescribing initiatives and working closely with the GP surgeries to promote health & wellbeing.
We recognise the role volunteers play in building healthy communities by promoting and supporting volunteers to find suitable volunteering opportunities, our good knowledge of local groups and needs enables us to help developing partnerships and meaningful volunteer experiences.
