Cornwall’s Warm and Well Partnership has been shortlisted for the Local Government Chronicle Awards

LGC editor Nick Golding said: “The councils that have been shortlisted for an LGC Award are among the most innovative – and their innovation is providing the best services for residents, despite local government facing enormous budget cuts.

“The officers and councillors of shortlisted councils deserve enormous credit for thinking of new ways to deliver the best services, ensuring vital services thrive in the era of austerity.”


Cold damp homes blight lives and take lives – picture perfect Cornwall has  too many of them and far too many people affected – the young, the old, teenagers struggling to concentrate on homework, parents struggling to get to their jobs work ready. Cold, damp, unfulfilled lives.

Winter Wellbeing is a remarkable partnership of 30 organizations resolving heating issues  to find a route out of poverty for good.

“Are you are in poor health or at risk of ill health, or with underlying health issues, or caring for a vulnerable person or worried about your home being cold or damp?” is the question we ask – and we’ve answered it for 17,000 already.
