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:
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)

- 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.
