Our Ethos & Values

Action East Devon is a leading local charity working within the communities of East Devon to create better wellbeing services and support for young people to enable them to live happier and healthier lives.

Action East Devon is a values based, delivery focused health and wellbeing organisation, providing practical help and support to individuals throughout East Devon and the surrounding areas.

We run projects and deliver services primarily but not exclusively across the East Devon locality and we work with a wide range of organisations to provide hands on support, advice and guidance to individuals within our local community.

Our values:

People’s Safety – We do this by making sure you are physically and emotionally safe during our support to you.

People’s Truth – We want you to be heard and validated and we respect your opinions and your story.

People’s Individuality – We are Non-judgmental, we accept you for you.

Our key focus throughout our work is to support and improve the health and wellbeing of people across East Devon and we do this by working with local people to identify gaps in service provision and developing ways to support people to live happier and healthier lives.

Our Ethos is to support, encourage and guide to deliver real change and better wellbeing.

iThrive Model of working

Action East Devon aligns to the IThrive model in all our services.

“The Thrive Approach is a dynamic, developmental and trauma-sensitive approach to meeting the emotional and social needs of children.

It is through this that we aim to achieve our vision of a world in which children’s social and emotional needs are better understood and met.”
