Affectionately called, Humans, this is a network for everyone in Cornwall to contribute to the support of neighbours in their own community. The pandemic demonstrated that we all have such needs at some point in our lives. Working alongside our NHS and Cornwall Council Humans receives referrals for people needing such support. Sometimes this is due to hospital discharge, but the team also supports people with other needs.
