Support Staffordshire and Community Council of Staffordshire Plan to unite

The Boards of Trustees of Support Staffordshire and The Community Council of Staffordshire are pleased to announce to all Partners their intention to unite the two organisations to create a countywide VCSE support organisation for Staffordshire that represents all urban and rural areas.

It is currently anticipated that formal unification will take place in August this year. The merger process includes ‘due diligence’ assessments of the two organisations.

Both Boards and Executive Officers confirm that this merger has come about through a thoughtful exploration of the purpose and futures of both organisations and that all parties view this as both a natural next step and one that will protect support services for our member organisations into the future across the whole of Staffordshire.


Bramshall Village passed Defib training

Bramshall Villagers came out in force last week and were trained to use the new Defibrillator by Jamie Richards from AEDdonate.

Everyone was really impressed with the equipment and now feel confident to deal with an emergency, if it should happen.

Two of the donors, Matt Slater from John German and Rupert Hill from Knights4Uttoxeter were both at the training session and both enjoyed the training and were happy to be able to help the Parish to install this vital life saving equipment.

The Chair of the Parish Council, Mrs Jean Pattinson-Evans, said a few words before the training took place to thank everyone who had donated to the cost of the machine.

Staffordshire Safer Roads – Grants available

As a pilot initiative, the Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership is inviting communities in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to bid for funding for local road safety projects. The funding is being awarded through a bidding process with £200,000 available over a 2 year period.

The money has been made available to:
improve road safety
increase public confidence in the safety of Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire’s roads
support communities to take local responsibility
The Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership is keen to support locally driven community road safety activities. Activities should aim to address an identified road safety issue which is of concern to the community. The Partnership would welcome a wide range of bids and encourage inventive thinking in how the funding could be used to make a positive difference in communities.

The 2018 funding rounds will be open for applications:
