Children and Families
In Cornwall, we have one of the highest poverty rates in the UK. Many children live in inadequate housing, which is poorly maintained or overcrowded.
Families who are on low incomes or on means tested benefits struggle to live on a day to day basis, especially with the rising costs of living, which have recently hit us, this is a grave concern for families. Many children have poor diets and rely on the one free meal school may provide.
The co-design events give ‘us’, the people who have real lived experience, the chance to have a say for future improvements for children and families.

What We Are Doing
The Co-design group goes to the Homes for Cornwall conference at Hall for Cornwall. This is a follow on, very publicised event to continue the work and momentum from the smaller conference at Bedruthan Steps. Jas and Rose give a speech to all attending - see 'If you don't have a safe home' poem.
