35 community hubs across the county offering winter support

Cornwall's charities and community groups have combined forces to support the most vulnerable people through a challenging winter.

Volunteer Cornwall, based in Heron Way, Newham, has been in talks with charities and voluntary organisations across the region to come up with a plan of action as the cost of living crisis hits.

A network of 35 Community Hubs will be on offer across the county, offering winter support, such as drop-in sessions on energy saving, as well as a warm place to go and talk to someone or take part in activities, including craft and cookery classes.

From November 1, there will also be a new Community Gateway service for people who haven't got a Community Hub nearby, or who are unable to leave the house due to illness or frailty.

All of this has been possible thanks to a unique partnership of more than 50 voluntary sector organisations working together with NHS Cornwall & Isles of Scilly and Cornwall Council. 

You can help too by offering to become a Winter Volunteer. Roles include delivering foodbank parcels and Winter Warmth packs.
