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.

Support Staffordshire was established on 12 January 2015 following the historic merger of six CVS partners across Staffordshire. This saw the creation of six Support Staffordshire offices across the county.
