Staffordshire Day 2019

Staffordshire Day is back on Wednesday 1st May 2019 and there are loads of ways to get involved!

Organisers Enjoy Staffordshire are looking for events on the theme of ‘Made in Staffordshire’ – could you organise something which celebrates Staffordshire products, food & drink, music, film, people or anything else which could be made in the county?

New for 2019 is the Great Big Staffordshire Quiz, a quiz based on our amazing county which could be hosted by a pub, school, charity or community group. A great way of raising funds for your organisation!

Community Development and End of Life Care Conference

This conference is FREE to attend and is open to everyone, funded by NHS England.


OVERVIEW

We all need to be comfortable around talking about dying. As community workers of all varieties – librarians, support workers, befrienders, housing officers, vicars – whatever role you undertake, you may have conversations with people around death, end of life care and future plans.   You may want to do this with more confidence and support people through this, knowing the right things to say.
