A new project has started in west Cornwall to support people who are not working and who have been adversely affected by the Covid-19 restrictions.
Inside Out will reach out to people whose mental health and emotional wellbeing has taken a knock during the pandemic and help them to get back on track and into training and work.
Led by local charity CLEAR, alongside Rebuild Southwest, Inside Out will provide a mix of online (Inside) and community-based (Out) support and activities to help people feel safe about reconnecting with their community, rebuild confidence, motivation and emotional resilience, and provide routes into work and training. The CHAOS Group will also support the project through vocational training and volunteer placements.
Inside Out is funded by the European Social Fund (through Community-Led Local Development managed by Cornwall Development Company), Cornwall Council and the project partners themselves.
Carolyn Webster, chief executive of CLEAR, said: “This project comes just at the right time as the country looks to safely more on from the pandemic. We have a great combination of skills across CLEAR, Rebuild Southwest, and CHAOS that can give people the helping hand they might need, whether that is emotional support, practical help to get into training and work or simply a way to get back into the swing of things in these difficult times.”
