During the pandemic Cornwall residents are seeing a real community spirit, with communities coming together and people helping each other - how can we get this to continue once the pandemic is over?

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

A recent survey of residents conducted by Cornwall Council shows how our communities pulled together during lockdown - and are calling for change.

500 residents of all ages and walks of life took part in the survey. They were asked about the impact of the pandemic on their lives and livelihoods, and about their hopes and fears for the future of Cornwall.

Over half of residents said that they had helped others, and 21 percent said they would like to continue to do so in the future. 73 percent agreed that local communities had pulled together during the crisis. 

The results show that only one in ten residents want things to go back to the way they were before the Coronavirus pandemic. Better community spirit is high on their list of things they want to see continuing once the pandemic is over.  What are your thoughts? How do we make this happen? What would persuade you to get (more) involved in your community?
