REACH Cornwall

We know social care and health providers across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly do an amazing job. We also know, there are simply not enough people, with the right skills, to meet the ever-growing needs for these services.

What is REACH Cornwall?

REACH Cornwall is an employer-led project which aims to address this issue. We invite anyone involved in the care or health sector, whatever your role or specialism, to join this new forum. Whether you manage a small or large healthcare organisation, own a care home, run a support group, provide a therapy service or are involved at the grassroots level, YOUR VIEWS MATTER. Together, we can identify key training needs and create high quality, innovative solutions that work for you and your team.

Please come along and discover more at one of our free launch events which are happening across Cornwall this November and December. Book your free place via Eventbrite at http://reachcornwall.eventbrite.com. Let's work together to Raise Excellence and Aspiration in Care and Health across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Meet the Team

Jenny Gramnes, Cornwall Health and Care Forum Coordinator (European Projects)

Jenny heads up our small but dedicated team. She administered projects as a part of the Health and Wellbeing Innovation Centre in Truro before going to Falmouth University to work in their Business School. Her passion for travel and partnership building took her on the path of managing all the study abroad activities at Falmouth, including the European programme Erasmus+. In her spare time, Jenny likes to race around - rollerskating on ramps, playing volleyball, running and surfing! Originally from Sweden, she adores the culture, nature, wonderful atmosphere and people of Cornwall. Jenny is keen to use her experience in European programmes to help develop this vital sector across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Dolly Mazonowicz, Skills Development Broker (Health and Social Care)

Dolly has a background in adult social care in both America and Cornwall, dating back to 1990. Over the past ten years, she has also worked with projects supported by funding from the European Social Fund and Skills for Care, to support learning and development in the care sector in Cornwall. Dolly qualified as a teacher in 2003 and is also a classically-trained chef! In her spare time, she enjoys keeping chickens, travel, cooking for family and friends, and spending time with her two funny little rescue dogs. She is the primary contact for individuals and organisations working in the social care sector.

Julie Cherry, ESF Marketing and Events Assistant

Julie has worked in a wide variety of roles across a number of sectors. Most recently, she was part of the Get In Cornwall project based at Royal Cornwall Hospital. There she encouraged young (and not so young) people to consider careers in health and social care. Outside of work, Julie's diverse passions include both Formula 1 motor racing and interior design! She is thrilled to be back in a creative role again and excited to be involved with such an innovative project.

Linda Bradley, Project Support

Linda provides support to both REACH Cornwall and our sister project, Hospitality Table Cornwall. She is very enthusiastic about this completely new role. Having previously worked in the public sector for many years, Linda brings a wealth of skills and experience with her. Her interests include keeping fit (circuit training), watching sports - particularly football, and socialising with friends and family. Linda is a very valuable and indispensable member of our team.
