Supporting the Voluntary Sector – what could you offer?

Support Staffordshire and Partners are exploring new ways of supporting voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations, including peer-peer support.

We are therefore inviting Expressions of Interest from any organisation who feel they have knowledge, expertise or skills to share, of value to the wider VCSE sector.

Team Staffordshire to Lead the Voluntary Sector in £11 Million Bid

Team Staffordshire – a consortium of local organisations has confirmed it has bid for more than £11 million being allocated to Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent through the Building Better Opportunities Fund this November. If successful the group, which also includes the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, NHS and Local Authority support, will receive funds to support people into work or nearer to work through activities such as work placements and volunteering.

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.
