CLEAR has been awarded £20,000 from the Postcode Local Trust, a grant giving charity funded entirely by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery to support the Adult Service throughout 2022.

Carolyn Webster, CLEAR CEO said: “We are very grateful to the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery who made this grant possible. The demand on our adult service are always high, but this has increased again as the Covid-19 restrictions ease. The funds will help us to provide vital support to reduce the harm caused by abuse and violence.”


CLEAR and Covid-19 omicron update in light of recent changes - it is clear that the situation is particularly risky. The rapid spread of the omicron variant and its consequences, together with the stricter restrictions of  'Plan B' and possible further restrictions are all likely to impact on the delivery of our services. We will review this impact early in the new year as the details become clearer. CLEAR services are closed over the holidays - from December 20th to January 4th.

Our overall approach will continue to be one of ensuring the safety of our workforce and our clients. We will, as ever, respect individual circumstances.

January 2022 Update - Although the Plan B restrictions will be lifted in the coming weeks Covid is very likely to continue to have an impact on the delivery of our services. Our overall approach will continue to be one of ensuring the safety of our workforce and our clients. And we will, as ever, respect individual circumstances.

CLEAR have launched their 2022 calendar!

It has been inspired by CLEAR Ideas - CLEAR’s children and young people’s coproduction group based on the theme of ‘Feelgood Food’. The Feelgood Food 2022 Calendar includes a recipe for every month of the year with contributions from CLEAR Ideas, family and friends as well as Rio the Therapy dog!

‘H’ who has provided a homemade pizza recipe explains its feelgood value:

“It brings happy thoughts and memories into my head whilst eating it. This pizza reminds me of Granddad as he always used to always make homemade pizza.”

CLEAR is the Cornwall based charity dedicated to the highest levels of care and support for people of all ages and all genders impacted by abuse and other emotional trauma.

CLEAR is one of a range of organisations in Cornwall helping residents who had to shield during the Covid-19 pandemic return to a ‘new normal’ funded through a pot of almost £1.5m delivered by Cornwall Council. The grants are supporting people who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable and in need of specialist support.

The projects will offer a range of services designed to improve physical and mental health, increase confidence, and enable vulnerable people to become more sociable in a safe and positive environment. The role of CLEAR will be to help reduce the impact of emotional trauma as a result of Covid-19: CLEAR will provide counselling, therapy, group and one-to-one support for emotional wellbeing, giving children, young people and adults they support the need to process their experiences, to develop strategies to cope and to build emotional resilience for the future.

Carolyn Webster, CLEAR CEO said: “This grant comes at just the right time – we regularly have a demand that exceeds resources but as we move to relaxing from the Covid restrictions the demand is growing even higher and none more so clients who are clinically extremely vulnerable – the last two years have proved very challenging in terms of fund raising and this grant really helps.”.

Cllr Dr Andy Virr, Cornwall Council’s Portfolio Holder for Adult Social Care, said: “The grant will make a huge difference to help those vulnerable people who have been cut off from society receive much-needed physical, mental and emotional support to rebuild their confidence as they return to a ‘new normal’ way of living.”

The grant funding of £1,423,055 has been awarded by the Minister of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government to enable Cornwall Council to support those in the local CEV community who need it the most.

Other grant recipients include: Active Cornwall, Active8, Age UK, Community Energy Plus, Cornwall Rural Community Charity, Disability Cornwall, Health for Homeless, NHS Kernow CCG, Cornwall Council Adult Care & Health Commissioning

Inside Out, a project that helps people who are not working and who have been adversely affected by the Covid-19 restrictions, is expanding its reach thanks to investment from the European Social Fund.

Led by local charity CLEAR, Inside Out reaches out to people whose mental health and emotional wellbeing has taken a knock during the pandemic and helps them to get back on track and into training and work. The project started in West Cornwall in March 2021 and now covers communities in the Camborne-Pool-Redruth, Falmouth-Penryn and Truro areas.

Jen joined Inside Out in West Cornwall in April and has recently started work. Her message for others is: “Don’t hesitate to join up! The wellbeing support and social interaction is a great way to get your confidence back and take the next step, wherever that may be.”

Carolyn Webster, Chief Executive of CLEAR, said: “The expansion of Inside Out comes just at the right time as communities look to safely move on from the pandemic. Inside Out provides a unique mix of trauma-informed wellbeing approaches alongside practical, fun community-based activities, all designed to rebuild emotional resilience, social connection and skills.”

Katy Hutchinson, from Inside Out delivery partner CHAOS said: “The CHAOS group is proud to be part of this great project and will be responsible for engaging with potential participants in the community and helping them to make the most of what Inside Out can offer. We look forward to working with CLEAR, Rebuild South West and Active Plus in this exciting project”
