Over 5000 free masks sent out to community carers so far!!
A Community of Makers
Welcome to the Cornwall Cloth Masks site. We are a group of volunteers helping to provide home-made reusable cloth face masks for community carers, good causes and charities in Cornwall, as an urgent response to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
These masks are meant for a range of community workers, many of whom currently have none. The masks primarily protect people that you meet from being infected by you. If you are directly providing care for someone who has, or potentially has, the Coronavirus, please speak to your employer about appropriate protection. The pattern we have used was designed for healthcare workers in America.
**Please note this website is for community carers and good causes who are unable to get PPE. Many of you will be aware we have been a group of friends volunteering and have facilitated over 5000 masks getting out to the local community. As many of us go back to work we are unable to help with the general public distribution. However, we have built up a group of over 700 members who can help.
If you are an individual looking for a face mask, please place your request on the following group and not through our request page. **
If you are a community carer or good cause and still in need of masks see our Request Your Masks page (below)
If you would like to sew masks, or help with distribution, then please see our mask makers & volunteers page (below). Please read all the information available before you start to sew
