News from Cornwall Carers Service 23/08/2021

We'd like to introduce you all to the new 'Carers Passport' which will be rolled out this Autumn!
A Carers Passport is a new record which identifies a carer and sets out an offer of support, services or other benefits in response. For example, free meals and free parking. The aim is to have a universally recognised, peninsula-wide card that is recognised by all hospitals in Cornwall and Devon.
The Cornwall Carers Service have teamed up with the Royal Cornwall Hospital, and we are holding an online Zoom meeting to get some expert views from you, the carers!
We feel it is important for as many of you as possible to join us for this chat, as you can tell us what you need from the Carers Passport, and help us to shape the service. We just need you to log in and let us know any ideas you have, how it can be used, how we can best communicate it, any concerns you have or absolutely anything else! We are here to listen and shape it as best we can around your needs. We promise this chat will be very friendly and engaging!
We know holding events online means it is not inclusive for everyone, but we are really aware that many people will not come to face to face meetings either just yet, which is completely understandable, but if you know someone who cannot attend, then maybe you could contact us and we may be able to help arrange for you to join in from a community venue if that would be helpful. Alternatively, just phone, email or message us and let us know your thoughts. (Tel: 01736 756655 or email:
Thank you very much, we can't wait to hear from you. 😊
Here are the details of the meeting πŸ‘‰
Date: 06/09/21
Time: 12:30 - 14:00
Here is the link to the meeting:

No one goes hungry- Probus and surrounding area

During these challenging times we are facing there has been great community spirit.
There has been a group created called 'No one goes Hungry- Probus and surrounding area'
Originally it was set up to support children but has been extended to support anyone who is needing help.
Unexpected expenses?
Hours Cut?
Made redundant?
On maternity leave?
Whatever the reason please contact-
They cover Probus, Ladock, Grampound, Grampound Rd, Tresillian and Tregony
Donations are essential to keep this group running.
There are donation points at-
Probus Church,
Probus Filling Station,
Probus Spar,
Trudgian Farm Shop,
Tregony School.
They are currently working on collecting items for Christmas Food Hampers.
They would love more donation points if there are any organisations locally who could provide this. Please contact the email address above if you would like more information.
We will be displaying posters at the Surgery for those who do not have access to our Website or Facebook.
