This great website has been setup for all the people of Cornwall. There is a wealth of information on community groups and health advice/support across the county for all age Groups. Take a look but please note that the search by area section works best when you enter a large town name, eg, Camborne or Redruth. Entering 'Pool' or 'St Day' may bring up no search results despite there being a lot to offer all around this area. http://cornwall-link.co.uk/
