Overview of Support

Support Staffordshire recognises that it’s not easy being a volunteer, or working for a Voluntary, Community or Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisation. So, we try to make all our support available through a variety of formats and as near to you as we can. If we can improve our access, then please let us know and if we can, we will.

However you access our services you can expect to be asked if you are a Member. That’s not just to make us feel good, it’s because as well as supporting your community group or business, we act as a champion of and for the VCSE sector – and to do this we need to show that we are part of a large movement for social good.

We also offer all our members 3 hours of support each year entirely free of charge. These three hours include any preparatory time and follow-up work that we need to undertake to support you, so you will want to think carefully about how to make the best use of free support. Take a look at the other pages in this section to get an idea of what is available for free and what we have to charge for.

By joining us as a Member, you help us to show we have a mandate for change. For further details of our Membership, which will allow you to access all of our services, please see our Membership page, contact our Memberships Team on 0300 7771207 or email membership@supportstaffordshire.org.uk
