At Reach Cornwall Our mission is to raise excellence and aspiration in care and health across Cornwall & The Isles of Scilly

REACH Cornwall is a new, employer-led initiative for the social care and health sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.  We believe those working in this sector do an amazing job.  However, there are simply not enough people, with the right skills, to meet the ever-growing need for these services.

Utilising the knowledge and experiences of those on the frontline, the REACH Cornwall forum will aim to address this.  Your views matter, whether for example, you:

  • Manage a small or large healthcare organisation
  • Own a care home
  • Run a support group
  • Provide a therapy service or
  • Are involved at the grass roots level in any role or capacity

Together we can identify training needs and develop high quality solutions that work for you and your team.

REACH Cornwall is part-funded by the European Social Fund and delivered by Truro and Penwith College.

As an employer-led forum, REACH Cornwall will offer those working across the social care and health sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly the opportunity to:

  • Network
  • Work collaboratively to identify skills shortages and develop tailored training packages
  • Discuss wider issues (e.g. recruitment and retention) and possible solutions, and ultimately,
  • Raise Excellence and Aspiration in Care and Health

The team behind the project is very committed.  We are passionate about ensuring this forum offers the maximum benefit for social care and health providers in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.  We feel that REACH Cornwall offers a real opportunity to collectively shape the future of social care and health skills provision.  Our hope is that, in turn, this will contribute to patients and those in need of social care receiving the very best service possible.

The intention is that the REACH Cornwall forum will continue in its own right after the funding allocated by European Social Fund ceases in March 2020 so providing a lasting legacy for the county.

What Reach Cornwall Offers

REACH Cornwall also offers the opportunity to work collaboratively to better understand and address wider issues, such as concerns surrounding recruitment and retention in the sector.

The project will be led by, and responsive to, the needs of its members.  So exactly, which specialist skills areas and issues the forum focusses on, and what solutions emerge, is up to you.  However, it is likely some or all of the following will evolve:

  • Management training
  • Short courses and bespoke programmes
  • Work placements and apprenticeships
  • Promotion of career opportunities
