Health and wellbeing is one of the priorities of the Panel. Cornwall Council Adult Social Care service will give a presentation on the transformation of adult social care and health and how it will benefit and impact the local community.

There will also be a presentation about measures being taken to strengthen localism in Cornwall and there will also be an opportunity for local groups to share their actions about climate change.

Helen Nicholson, Communities Link Officer, says: “Everyone is invited to attend our Community Network Panel and hear about our work on local issues.

“Come along, find out more and meet your parish, town and Cornwall councillor.”

Community network panels are an opportunity for members of the public to engage with what’s happening in their local area, to speak to their local Town and Parish Councillors and shape the future of where they live.

The St Austell and Mevagissey Community Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local area and to progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners, including town and parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, and the police and health services. Some of the areas that community network focuses on include economic investment, health and wellbeing, deprivation, climate change, community safety and transport and highways issues.

The St Austell and Mevagissey Community Network Panel includes all Cornwall Councillors for the area including St Austell, St Austell Bay, St Mewan, St Ewe, Mevagissey and Gorran.

The meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
