Sign up to text message scam alerts

Cornwall's trading standards officers are warning us all - no matter our age or background - to be on our guard against scammers.

Research by Citizens Advice shows that fraudsters have targeted more than two thirds of British adults - that's 36 million people - since January alone, as they try to cash in on the pandemic by exploiting the pressures it's put us under.

The scams are mostly fake 'get rich quick” investment schemes or fraudsters pretending to be your bank to get you to transfer money or personal details. 

Cornwall Council's Trading Standards team is offering a scam alert text service.  Sign up below and we'll send you text alerts about current scams targeting Cornwall residents.

Worried about mental health?

The pandemic has put all sorts of unexpected pressures on us over a prolonged period and many of us have been finding that our mental health has suffered as never before.

If this is you, or someone you know, then it's worth considering making a plan for if times get really tough. A Mental Health Safety Plan is a preventative tool designed to support us when we are struggling. 

Safety plans are best created when we're not in crisis but actually feeling pretty okay, as it's harder to think clearly when you're really low or  overwhelmed.

Think of a safety plan as a ‘mental health first-aid kit’. It includes different things that will help you through a crisis.
