Prosper and Thrive – AGM 2016

Inclusion Cornwall ideally placed to take a lead role in preventing exclusion throughout Cornwall


This year’s Inclusion Cornwall AGM reinforced the key pivotal role that the partnership has to play in both developing the strategic direction for inclusion issues in Cornwall and in using its expertise and unique central position to support and link partners for the benefit of residents in Cornwall.


It was agreed at the AGM that Inclusion Cornwall will continue to both challenge issues affecting inclusion in Cornwall and provide a tactical response to support customers where there is a gap to be filled. It will join up support provision in Cornwall and remain an organisation focused on positive ‘outcomes’ for the residents of Cornwall.

Kate Kennally, Cornwall Council’s CEO, presented at the meeting and outlined the council’s commitment to improving the lives of all of the county’s residents, with everyone having the opportunity to PROSPER and THRIVE.

In particular, key areas of support from Inclusion Cornwall could include:

  • homelessness
  • financial inclusion
  • improving systems
  • enhancing household income
  • being ready for benefit changes
  • devolution to a local level.
