In a multi-disciplinary approach, teams across the Council including Housing, Countryside and Environmental Health work together with partners to combat inequalities and encourage healthier lifestyles. Particular efforts have focused on priority communities in Exmouth, Honiton, Axminster and the new town of Cranbrook.

We have sought effective and creative ways of achieving this within existing resources. The Reviews illustrate what we can achieve and demonstrate that we made excellent use of the initial two-year funding received from Devon County Council for public health activities.
