Training Sessions supported by Support Staffordshire 
to book please click the link below:

There are 3 new sessions which support the reopening of community activities, following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions:

Session 1: Preparing to reopen premises safely

Session 2: Preparing to reopen activity groups safely

Session 3: Encouraging a safe return to community activities

We are also continuing to run a couple more sessions of the Mental Health Awareness course and later this year will be reintroducing the popular sessions on:

  • Signposting and Resources,
  • Communication and Safeguarding, and
  • Assistive Technology & Digital skills


Each session lasts for 1 hour and all sessions are free to attend.

This is being shared with parish and town councils to share through their networks, but please also note that parish councillors are more than welcome to attend some of the training themselves too.

We are excited to announce the launch of the fifth annual Community Awards.

Do you know someone who gives up their own time to help others or who  has set up a local  lunch club or foodbank? Are you involved with projects that promote a healthier lifestyle, like  setting up a walking club or cook and learn project? Is there a business or group which contributes to a healthier environment through litter picking, recycling projects, keeping your community clean and tidy or has taken action to conserve wildlife? Are you involved in a project that has helped support people through Covid-19?

If you have a relevant project we would love you to apply for the new Stafford Borough Council Community Awards 2021.

You can either apply for your self or nominate someone you know that fits the description, awards are open to individuals, community groups, schools, voluntary sector organisations, community interest companies and public or private organisations working hard to contribute to the wellbeing of their community.

More details and the application form can be found here: www.staffordbc.gov.uk/communityawards

All application forms need to be sent to communityawards@staffordbc.gov.uk  - The closing date is 20 September 2021

Have Your Say To Help To Enhance The Safety of Girls and Women In Public Spaces

Have you ever experienced intimidation, harassment or violence in a public space?

The Government has launched a new fund to improve and address the safety of girls and women in public areas.

It is important the Staffordshire Commissioner’s Office understands the views and experiences of women and girls over the age of 12 so that if successful in their bid they are able to work with existing services and partners to enhance services for young girls and women who live, work, and socialise within our community.

It is important they gain an insight into the experiences, those not reported as well as those reported, to improve the safety of public spaces.

This survey will take no more than 5 minutes to complete and is entirely anonymous, we'd appreciate your support in promoting it within your local community
