Newsletter Highlights 4

On Saturday 27th April, we ran our first community conversation through the support of Newquay Salvation Army to discuss our new "Keep Cornwall Carpeted" campaign.

During the morning we met with individuals and families who have been impacted by the lack of carpeted floor when moving into their social housing property. We discussed the challenges they are facing, how this policy has been affecting them and their family, how they indvidually attempted to solve the issue. It's been incredibly valuable to listen to testimonies from people with first hand experience and understand their journeys.

We are very grateful to those who took the time to attend and come and speak to us. We feel even more determined to continue our campaign. We are currently planning on rolling more of these community conversations in other areas in Cornwall to discuss how together we can make change happen. So whatch this space!

About Keep Cornwall Carpeted

Did you know that many tenants in social houses across Cornwall are moving in to concrete and bare floors? Or they are having to rip up their carpets when they move out and take it with them?

We have launched "Keep Cornwall Carpeted", a new campaign to raise awareness of this practice and to help stop the unfair removal of perfectly reusable carpets in social housing properties in Cornwall. We need your help to spread the word.

This issue has been identified as one of the local drivers for people who need to access emergency food provision in our community.
