The award recognises the work that Winter Wellbeing, made up of over 30 partners, has done to reduce fuel poverty and make homes warmer for residents in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

In the past year the partnership has led on improvements to 338 homes with a further 1,080 to be completed by January 2019. The works have been carried out under a number of initiatives such as the Central Heating Fund, and Warm and Well Cornwall.

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are in the top 3 local government areas for homes without central heating. In 2015 there were over 34,000 homes in fuel poverty (14.2%), and the Council has an ambition to reduce this to 5% by 2030, which means removing 22,000 homes out of fuel poverty.

Anyone seeking help with their heating can call the Winter Wellbeing partnership for free on 0800 954 1956 or Call Bev at Warm and Well Cornwall on 01872 326552.

Inclusion Cornwall Annual Report 2017 Published

A Wave from the AGM

The recent Inclusion Cornwall Steering Group and wider members considered just one issue.  Did our network understand what we do?  The answer was a clear Yes.  Clear information is sent from the hub daily and partners welcomed being kept up-to-date in an easy way.  Partners also welcomed the independence of Inclusion Cornwall and the need to continue to draw people together, share opportunities that they can use for their customers and really understand the issues people face.  Gaps were discussed and the extremely isolated was identified.  Read what we have been us to here:-  IC Annual Report 2017
