Support Staffordshire works with a wide variety of parish and village based organisations throughout the county. They include groups attached to local churches, schools, community centres, village halls, shops and even pubs. Many groups provide local services and activities from village halls in particular. Village or parish halls can often be the key hubs in their communities and are usually run by separate village hall committees.
