Another presentation will be by Laura Chapman, Community Maker with Volunteer Cornwall, who will be explaining Social Prescribing.

There will be feedback from the Climate Change Working Group, and updates from Cornwall Councillors as well as Town and Parish Councillors.

Chris Sims, Community Link Officer for Launceston, says: “Everyone with an interest in our area is very welcome to join us. The panel discusses issues affecting the community network area, agrees ways to progress them, and builds working relationships between local partners.”

“All meetings are open to the public and the press, and there is an opportunity for views to be expressed, and to ask questions of decision makers in an informal setting. We do hope you can join us.”

The panel invites local organisations and service providers, including the police and health services, to join them at their meetings.

This public guide to community network panels explains how the meetings work, gives rules for reporting and filming, and shows the full agenda for this and previous meetings.
