Health Works for Cornwall
Area of Delivery: South and East and Coast to Coast Cornwall
In partnership with Cornwall Development Company, Pluss will be offering a helping hand to over 2,250 people who are out of work to support them to build confidence, improve wellbeing and move towards and into work.
We’ll be reaching out to Cornwall’s most rural and excluded communities to ensure that anyone with a health or wellbeing need can get the support they want and need.
Pluss will also be offering a specialist employment service to 400 people with a learning disability. Our participants will be at the very helm of the service, helping us to break down barriers, co-design and market the programme in a way that they feel works best.
Our support is tailored to each individual and will include:
- Help to build self-esteem, confidence and independence
- Understanding each individuals work, life and health aspirations
- Assisting with job search, CVs and interview techniques
- Arranging work trials, tasters and introductions to local employers
- In-work support for up to six months.
Health Works for Cornwall is co-financed by the European Social Fund.

People Panel – shaping local services
We are setting up what is being called a People Panel for the Health Works for Cornwall programme.
At the heart of everything we do
People with learning difficulties and disabilities are really important to us and we would like your help to make things easier by having a say in the way we talk to employers about what you want and need.
The People Panel is made up of a group of people – with learning difficulties and disabilities – who can help shape the services we deliver. You are important to us and we really want to hear your ideas.
Maybe you already have a job, maybe you don’t. Your views are just as important to us either way.
Want to know more?
This will not take up a lot of your time. There will be some meetings, probably virtually for the time being and maybe some fun activities when we can meet in person later on. We want you to feel included, so wherever you live in Cornwall, you can join us.
Interested? Put your contact details in the boxes on this page and click submit and we’ll be in touch.
