Safer Communities CIC recognise that like many issues and challenges faced by local people the answers and solutions can often be found there too. More often than not it is local people who have the answers - the challenges of crime, anti-social behaviour, health and wellbeing and social isolation have all benefited from the innovation and dedication of local communities which is why…

Grants for clubs, community groups and regions across the UK with an active interest in wider canoeing participation.
The principle functions of the Canoe Foundation are to raise money; inform and educate; and allocate funds, in line with its main purpose to “support all to enjoy and benefit from the experience of paddling on our water in a sustainable manner”. The Foundation does this through grant making that facilitates improvements to suitable landing and launching points and by promoting the conservation of inland waterways for the benefit of all sectors of the community.

The Staffordshire Community Learning Trust Responsiveness Fund (CLTRF) offers local grants for the delivery of adult learning programmes which address the identified needs of local communities. The CLTRF is funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
The funding is for the delivery of education and training for adults returning to learning (aged 19+ as of 31st August 2019).
Despite dramatically reduced funding which means that Staffordshire County Council cannot do everything it once did, or would like to do, we can still make Staffordshire a great place to live and work. This means the county council and all of our communities need to work together differently, where the county council continues to focus on fulfilling its legal obligations and supporting the most vulnerable people in our communities, and communities do more for themselves and others.
