Press Release from Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis:-
'Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis says 2016 could be a defining year for policing and is keen to update community groups in Stafford as part of his ongoing engagement activities.
The Commissioner wants to visit local groups across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to speak about the progress made so far and plans for the future to make sure the police respond appropriately to demand and victims are at the centre of the criminal justice system.
The FSI are offering small charities a fundraising training programme. The programme, worth over £100,000, will provide expert training to small charities from February to June 2016. It will help charities with an annual income of up to £1 million to generate more income to support their vital work.
Calling all charities, voluntary and community groups in Staffordshire – do you know that you can access support, advice and training on how to set up and run your group, support for volunteers and discounted services such as printing/laminating/photocopying, room and minibus hire?
Construction has now started on state of the art fire station facilities at Burton, Rugeley, Chase Terrace, Leek, Loggerheads, Penkridge, Lichfield, Kinver, Codsall, Stone and Longton.
All stations are due to be completed in 2016. This supplements the first phase which provided new Community Fire Stations at Rising Brook, Sandyford, Tamworth, Uttoxeter, Cannock, Hanley, Burslem, Newcastle and Kidsgrove. Alongside these, community facilities at Cheadle, Wombourne, Longnor, Biddulph and Gnosall were fully refurbished.
Great ideas for community safety solutions come from local people – which is why Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis is inviting groups in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to bid for money from the Commissioner’s People Power Fund.
