Welcome to Belle’s Place

at the heart of the Ilfracombe Community

The power of community to create health is far greater than any doctor, clinic or hospital”

Who, What, Where

Belle’s Place is run entirely by volunteers based in the heart of Ilfracombe. We work with around 250-300 people at any one time, referred from agencies, social services, and schools as well as self-referral.

We help those in need to access further support.

We help to support the most vulnerable individuals and families in our community.
