Active Devon will soon be offering Free online training for Devon Connect & Joy!

Devon Connect is linked to Joy, a platform which helps give social prescribers and other health and personalised care roles the tools to signpost patients to services that can improve their health and wellbeing.  Each time you post an event or community listing on Devon Connect this activity can be shared with the Joy Marketplace. The Joy Marketplace is then used by social prescribers and other health and personalised care roles to signpost patients to local services and activities that could improve their health outcomes.  To learn more about Joy click here.
