“I came in for pain killers and I am leaving with hope”

Ready to Connect?

Covering Exeter, we work with the 16 NHS GP Practices (Community Connecting) alongside hosting a Community Builder in each Exeter Neighbourhood ward (Community Building). Exeter based residents can access the following:

Community Connecting

WHAT: Working with you via your GP to enable you to improve and promote your own health and wellbeing.

You’ll be linked to a Community Connector who will work in a way that:

  • Looks at what’s strong in your life – not what’s wrong
  • Is holistic (covering social, physical, emotional, practical aspects)
  • Is led by you
  • Draws out your motivations and passions, helping you to realise your gifts

The team have knowledge of a vast range of local opportunities, which they will explore with you, connecting you to ones that are right for you.

HOW TO ACCESS: Speak to a Health and Care Professional at your Exeter GP Practice to be linked in.

Community Building

WHAT: Each Exeter neighbourhood host’s a Community Builder (Meet the Team), whose role is to:

  • Listen to residents – uncovering what people feel strongly about
  • Connect people to ideas
  • Help the community develop what is important to them

You may have already met your local Community Builder but if not, you can make contact and get involved in helping shape your community.
