Staffordshire Safer Neighbourhood Panel News

Staffordshire Safer Neighbourhood Panel Autumn Newsletter is available now and can be downloaded below.

Safer Neighbourhood Panels, set up by the Police and Crime Commissioner, are made up of local resi-dents who meet regularly with their area’s local policing commander.

The panels shape local policing and community safety and shine the spotlight on the work done by po-lice in their area to ensure greater transparency and help build public confidence. They examine the im-pact of policing, community resolutions and restorative justice, on their communities.

Pathway Project - Annual General Meeting


The meeting will begin with the formal business of the AGM and will then proceed to presentations by the people who really know the most about our services, those who use them.

We would be very grateful if you could RSVP via email to aprilb@pathway-project.co.uk  

Autumn Statement - NAVCA's Analysis

Please find attached a briefing paper on this week’s Autumn Statement, outlining some of key spending promises in the Budget and their implications for VCSE organisations.
