People Helping People Fund

Despite dramatically reduced funding which means that Staffordshire County Council cannot do everything it once did, or would like to do, we can still make Staffordshire a great place to live and work. This means the county council and all of our communities need to work together differently, where the county council continues to focus on fulfilling its legal obligations and supporting the most vulnerable people in our communities, and communities do more for themselves and others.

Doing Our Bit in Staffordshire

Invitation from Cllr Phillip Atkins OBE Leader of Staffordshire County Council

I’m sure we can all agree on reasons why living in Staffordshire is great.  Most people are in a job, our economy is growing and people tell us that they are happy and feel safe.  I know that together with the people of Staffordshire and partners right across public, private, voluntary and community sectors, we’re all committed to continue working together in making Staffordshire an even better place to live, work and visit.
