Throughout the of summer of 2011 Cornwall Council talked with community leaders, stakeholders, residents, and employees about the issues and opportunities affecting Cornwall and the people who live here.
We collected and compiled themes, views and suggestions from the conversations that took place and provided them back to our councillors and senior managers.
What people told us is helping to inform and influence our decisions about services and budgets, and shape our long term plans and strategies.
Thank you to everyone who has gave us their views, thoughts and comments.
People contributed to Cornwall Conversations in 2011 in a number of ways including using our online form; writing on comment posters in libraries and job centres; at county shows including the Royal Cornwall Show, Launceston Show and Stithians Show; at specific events including Cornwall People First advocacy group meetings, Provider First Forum meetings and during a Radio Cornwall broadcast. A number of groups also gave us their comments including learning disability day centres, carers and carer support workers, community network local groups, Bude U3A, Youth Parliament and Dreadnought. Town and Parish Councils were able to give us their comments when they met with Alec Robertson and Cabinet Members at three special cluster events in Truro, Bodmin and Penzance.
