Cornwall

We deliver two contracts in Cornwall; Coast to Coast and South East Cornwall. The projects will help over 2,300 individuals who are out of work to build their confidence and develop their skills. The programme will be personally tailored to individual needs and will include help with personal development, health and wellbeing, and to develop life-skills including digital technology.

Partners began to deliver these projects collectively worth £9 million in 2017 and will deliver the project over the next three years. Pluss’ Chief Executive, Steve Hawkins, said “Positive People will support hundreds of people across Cornwall to overcome a range of barriers and build a brighter future for themselves and their families”.

Cornwall Neighbourhoods for change

Cornwall Neighbourhoods for change

What do we do? We support people who want to make a change for the better. We challenge the system where we see it is broken. We challenge people to change their lives to achieve their potential. We work with people and organisations to make Cornwall fairer.

Every day we see that the current system is unfair and that people do not have equal opportunity to meet their basic needs and make their lives better. As well as being morally unjust, this inequality costs us all millions that could be better spent on solutions to fundamental problems.
