Social prescribing empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing. It is through referral to the One Ilfracombe Community Connector that this is achieved with the role being focused on addressing what matters to the individual. 

The majority of this is achieved by adopting a holistic approach to an individual’s health and wellbeing, connecting people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

Requests for the services of the Community Connector are either made directly, through a GP referral or a wide range of local agencies.

The Community Connector plays a key role in the Primary Care Network working with the Combe Coastal Practice and the other social prescribers across the region.
