Food for Change supports you to grow, cook and trade food in your community. Through short courses, volunteering, work experience and social activities in your local area, the programme will help you to gain knowledge, practical skills and positive experiences that will help you progress towards work and develop personally.

Tailored personal support is available along the way to help you identify your priorities and support you to achieve your goals.

The programme is open to people of all ages and capabilities who are out of work. Involvement can be for as long as you need to gain the skills, confidence and experience to progress.

Transformation Cornwall's Food for Change Community Support Worker:

My name is Nicky and I am a community support worker employed by Transformation Cornwall as part of the Food for Change (FFC) programme. Food for Change is a brilliant project in Cornwall involving different organisations across Camborne, Pool and Redruth, Truro, St Austell and Newquay.

I am working with people who have joined the programme in Truro and St Austell. They can chose to participate in different activities which focus on growing food, cooking food and trading food.

I support each person to set meaningful goals that are focused on moving closer to work or training and improving their well-being. A large part of my work is to provide individual support to help people address any barriers they might have and to develop whatever they might need.
