      Hi Mary

      Thanks for your question. If you go to the front page of our website, three paragraphs down, there is a heading – ‘Membership of the Alliance is open to all…. click on the link – ‘join our mailing list’. This will take you to a form which requests the usual information for such things. Provide at least your E-mail address, and any other details that you wish, then click the subscribe button at the bottom of the form. Job done.

      I hope this helps

      Kind regards

    Hi Rob
    How do Cornwall service users & carers contact you about issues in their area? Is it through the “Leave A Reply” or have you got your own contact details where people can reach you direct?

      Hi again Nicki

      I forgot to say that they can also do it directly through this website, I have set up the E-mail to try to provide more flexibility.
