Staffordshire County Council - All Age Disability Engagement and Participation Mapping

The current Strategy for All-Age Disabled People in Staffordshire comes to an end in March 2018. People fed back that they wanted to know when things would happen, so the new strategy will be accompanied by clear, costed delivery plans which will make clear when things will happen, and ensure that the plans are both unambiguous and financially viable.

Grants of between £20,000 and £50,000 per year for up to three years (with a maximum of £150,000 in total) are available.

Message from the Chief Executive

In the next few weeks we will know the outcome of local elections which will set the direction of local government at a county level for the next 4 years. In combination with a majority central government the policies and investments up to at least 2020 will soon be known and it will be a critical time. A combination of Brexit-related economic change and an as yet unresolved crunch time for publicly funded Health and Care services, will mean the next few years are very likely to see significant change in our local economies and wider lives.
