Staffordshire rural forum update - August 2015

Wed 5 Aug 2015

Staffordshire Rural Forum has been operational, in its current form, for a couple of years. The aim is to progress actions that meet rural needs and where a multi-agency partnership can make a difference. Organised with theme groups on the economy, the environment and the community, each reporting to a steering group, there is opportunity for the VCSE to be represented at each meeting.

Currently Jill Norman of Support Staffordshire chairs the Community Themed Action Group which is looking at issues such as mental health in rural areas; transport, affordable housing and food. The Forum’s website is currently being enhanced so contact details will be given in a future newsletter.

Meantime, anyone with a particular rural issue that you feel could be usefully raised through the Forum can contact Jill on jillnorman@smcvs.co.uk
