Healthwatch Cornwall & Age UK collaborate in response to Coronavirus, linking their digital community platforms.

Ask Cornwall and Cornwall Link will promote and link directly to each others site by signposting people dependent upon their needs.

Ask Cornwall and Cornwall Link offer complementing resources and purpose both around community and health and wellbeing. Ask Cornwall is where you can draw attention to gaps and ask for ideas to meet needs not yet being addressed in your community and Cornwall Link is where you will find  support that already exists in local communities.

With each site signposting people dependent upon their needs to the correct platform, residents of Cornwall will be able to share, find and discuss their community needs more easily than ever before.

Healthwatch Cornwall created Ask Cornwall as an online community platform to understand what Cornwall needs from their health, social care and wellbeing services. The platform allows people to contribute ideas, ask questions, join conversations and make connections to help influence change in the health and social care/wellbeing space.

Right now, so many of us are isolating and in every area of life digital connection is making a real difference. We are very pleased that our Ask Cornwall community platform- a place for people to discuss their needs and develop solutions, can unite with Cornwall Link- providing access to help and events already happening within our communities. It’s a great example of services working together to make it easier for people
— Amanda Stratford - CEO Healthwatch Cornwall
