Support for New Work project

St Michael's Hotel and Spa has signed up to support Dott Cornwall's New Work project, which has also been touring the county with its New Work campervan

A Falmouth hotel has agreed to lend its support to a project which aims to help people affected by redundancy in Cornwall.

The St Michael’s Hotel & Spa has joined forces with Dott Cornwall to help raise the profile of the organisation’s New Work scheme.

New Work, which is managed by Dott Cornwall and sponsored by the Skills Funding Agency, aims to enhance the skills of people in Cornwall so they can achieve better paid jobs that are relevant to the county’s future economy.

Robert Woolf of Penryn-based SEA Communications, who is delivering the project, said: “We’re really excited by the support that the team at St Michael’s have given us and the New Work project.

“We’re keen to partner with businesses who have deep roots here and who are trusted by the people of Cornwall to reinforce the fact that employers care about the workforce.


“We know the St Michael’s team put a lot of time and effort into supporting the local community and we’re grateful that they agreed to back the campaign.”

As part of its support, St Michael’s is providing the New Work project with a prize of a night’s accommodation, full Cornish breakfast in The Flying Fish Restaurant and full use of all the spa facilities.

Gemma Teague, marketing manager at St Michael’s, said: “I’m pleased that we’re able to support Dott Cornwall and the New Work project.

“The project offers an innovative approach to helping people affected by redundancy.”
