GWR Update to Timetable May 2020
Local businesses have been enquiring about how they can register for grant support and the latest advice is that letters have been sent to business or correspondence address. Business owners will need to complete an online form with some simple bits of information to be able to pay the grant - the quicker this information is provided the sooner the grant can be paid.
If an owner canít access their business premises or hasnít received a letter by Friday 3rd April, then they should contact Cornwall Council on 0300 1234 171.

Volunteer Cornwall - Offers of Help
Many local organisations including charities are currently struggling to cope with the volume of requests for support. Volunteer Cornwall is leading the coordination and recruitment for new volunteers and we have been asked to actively promote this approach, using them as the first place to make an offer, either as an individual, a group or a business. Volunteering to fill some of these gaps and anything you can do to advertise this would be very helpful.
Requests for Help
Volunteer Cornwall is also the first place for individual requests for help. They are able to assist individuals and local groups who need help, especially if they are in the shielded or self-isolating groups, are vulnerable or lonely. We have been asked to promote contacting Volunteer Cornwall who have guaranteed a local response for any need. Volunteering to fill some of these gaps and anything you can do to advertise this would be very helpful.
If you know of someone who needs help they can either email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 01872 266988

Cornwallís integrated domestic abuse and sexual violence service, Safer Futures
, is still providing support, safety planning and information via their helpline, text service and online. Safer Futures will also direct people to any additional services that they may need and can liaise on their behalf if appropriate to do so, for example if someone feels they want to access a refuge at this time. There is also refuge and support via the Cornwall Refuge Trust website
and their 24 hour helpline: 01872 225629.
