Rural Service

Since September 2018, Support Staffordshire has taken on the role of Rural Community Council for Staffordshire (previously done by the Community Council of Staffordshire) and is the local member of ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England).

Our Rural Officers offer an additional rural-focused service on top of our general range of services to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations across Staffordshire.

They can offer expert support and development advice on all aspects of running an effective organisation including funding, governance, and licencing.

If you are involved in a village hall, a community shop, a community pub, or other rural community group and you would like some support, call your Support Staffordshire Rural Officer on the details below.
