Support Staffordshire, as part of the Team Staffordshire consortia, is calling out to any of its members who may be interested in working with others as part of the new Drug and Alcohol Service, that is about to be tendered by the county council.
Tamworth & District
We are really proud of the extensive learning opportunities we deliver across Staffordshire for those working in the VCSE sector. We limit the number of spaces on each course to make sure all learners have the best possible expereince, this means that often courses get booked up really quickly. It is disappointing therefore when people don't turn up for their training and don't let us know in advance. As a result of this we have changed our cacellation policy.
Support Staffordshire is proud to be the convenor of an important Strategic Group known as Team Staffordshire. As well as acting as a bidding consortia, the group also acts as a strategic thinking group and represents the sector in certain external bodies such as the LEP. The group involves local authority and local business representatives, but is voluntary sector led.
Citizens Advice Mid Staffordshire currently provides a range of advisory services to Tamworth residents on behalf of Tamworth Borough Council, in what has been a very effective partnership.
We are saddened by the news that CAMS is to close and appreciate it must have been a very difficult decision for the trustees to make. The council had no previous warning of the closure.
Together We’re Better, the partnership of NHS, local government, voluntary and community sector organisations that is leading on the transformation of health and social care services in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent is inviting local people to join its Local Representatives group.
This group is comprised of volunteer patient and community representatives who are passionate about public participation and want to help shape health and care services in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
Funded by NHS England, this FREE 2 hour workshops will provide you with the awareness and understanding to help engage people in conversations about bereavement and planning for your future care.
• What do you say (and don’t say) to a bereaved person?
• How do you approach discussions about care planning?
• When is the right time to have these conversations?
