Healthwatch Staffordshire needs your help!


Can you help Healthwatch Staffordshire in reaching it's new target to get over 500 reviews on their feedback platform, Experience Exchange?

Some of you may already be aware of Experience Exchange, but if you have not used it, Experience Exchange is the go-to website for sharing feedback on health and social care services you have used or accessed in your local area.

Through their simple rating system you can be as detailed as you like, and all reviews can be made anonymous, if so desired.

Work Force Volunteering for ‘One Off’ Projects?

At Support Staffordshire we regularly have businesses across Staffordshire who contact us asking for ‘one off’ volunteering opportunities for their workforce. For example a request was recently received for an organisation with a workforce of 20 people who are looking to volunteer for a day in March.

Does your organisation have any projects that they would like a group volunteers to undertake for a day? Volunteers could be involved in projects such as gardening, cleaning, painting and decorating or anything else that you have identified could be of use to your organisation.

Support Staffordshire & the Armed Forces Community Covenant

Support Staffordshire has committed to supporting local armed forces families and communities by signing the Staffordshire Armed Forces Community Covenant. The covenant, first launched in May 2012 and reaffirmed earlier this year, complements, at a local level, the national Armed Forces Covenant, which outlines the moral obligation between the nation, the government and the armed forces.


Do you know someone who puts dignity at the heart of the care or support that they give? Take the time to thank them for their support by nominating them for a Dignity Award.

These awards provide the opportunity to recognise and reward those people and organisations in the community whose actions make a difference and serve as an example to others. This can include young people, family carers, community groups, supportive friends or a neighbour.

Closing date for nominations is Wednesday 6th January 2016.
