“Better health, economic prosperity and a higher quality living environment for the people of Ilfracombe.”

“What is One Ilfracombe?”

One Ilfracombe is a company limited by guarantee set up to help improve the lives of people living in Ilfracombe. The company is made up of partner agencies and independent members, working alongside each other to deliver services in a better and more joined up way.


One Ilfracombe sets out to redesign the way services are delivered locally to achieve better outcomes for the people that use and pay for them. As one of the pioneers that paved the way for the national Our Place! programme which has now been rolled out across the country, it offers local people more say over services and expenditure.

By bringing services, businesses, schools and residents together into one team, we can achieve so much more and be in a better position to fulfill our vision of “Better health, economic prosperity and high quality living environment for the people of Ilfracombe”.


One Ilfracombe Themes

One Ilfracombe recognises that there is often a disconnect between local public services and the communities they deliver to.   

In recognition that these local service providers, as partners of One Ilfracombe, are an intrical element of the local community, they work alongside residents, business owners and local organisations to deliver projects that continue tobenefit everyone in the community.

With such a wide range of issues and ideas on how best to make this happen, since 2013, One Ilfracombe has been delivery through 3 unique themes:
