Falmouth Town Council members and staff paid a visit to Falcare last week to see for themselves the support it gives people with learning disabilities.

Mayor Grenville Chappel was joined by some of his fellow councillors and town clerk, Mark Williams, and Henrietta Boex, director of cultural services, when he met Falcare's managing director, Sue Miners; chairman, Paul Wyatt, and some of those who use the services provided at its centre in Kimberley Park Road and at the Penryn Learning Zone at Penryn Rugby Club.

The visit comes hot on the tail of Falcare, a community interest company, being rated as "outstanding overall" by the Care Quality Commission in December. The company supports people with learning disabilities to take control of their lives, enjoy their community and live as independently as possible in their own homes.

Mr Chappel said afterwards: "I am impressed by the professionalism and high quality care provided to users helping people to live as independently as possible in our community."
