Support Staffordshire and Community Council of Staffordshire Plan to Unite

Mon 19 Mar 2018

Statement to Partners

The Boards of Trustees of Support Staffordshire and The Community Council of Staffordshire are pleased to announce to all Partners their intention to unite the two organisations to create a countywide VCSE support organisation for Staffordshire that represents all urban and rural areas.

It is currently anticipated that formal unification will take place in August this year. The merger process includes ‘due diligence’ assessment of the two organisations.

Where The Community Council has local funding, contracts or investments we will be in touch with you individually over the coming weeks to discuss the proposed novation of such agreements as part of the merger process.

Both Boards and Executive Officers wish all Partners to know that this merger has come about through a thoughtful exploration of the purpose and futures of both organisations and that all parties view this as both a natural next step and one that will protect support services for our member organisations into the future across the whole of Staffordshire.
