Carers' Strategy Engagement

Every day, thousands of people across the county provide unpaid care for someone who matters to them.

Staffordshire County Council and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups in Staffordshire have put together a draft strategy for carers, which sets out our priorities. We would like to hear from carers and professionals what they think of the proposed strategy, and if there is anything else we need to consider.

Rural Economy Inquiry Report Supports the Call for a Rural Strategy

The Rural Economy inquiry report was published on 27 April 2019, in it the Committee have called for a comprehensive national-level rural economic strategy, to be delivered locally via communities, councils and businesses.

The House of Lords Select Committee on the Rural Economy was appointed on 17 May 2018 to consider the rural economy, and while there have been studies of particular aspects of the rural economy, such as agriculture, and digital connectivity, the ad hoc inquiry sought to bring these issues together, considering the rural economy as a whole.
