Children, Young People & Families


From 2 October, Pathway Project will be taking over the delivery of services for those suffering domestic abuse in East Staffordshire.  Following on from the decision by Home Group to end their service, we have been working hard with them to provide a seamless handover and we hope that we will be able to continue to develop on past work.

Banking Staff Support Local Recycling raising over £2,500

Star Foundation gave a chance for a team of seven Natwest bankers to volunteer their time for a day and help with community recycling.

The team benefited from a short orientation session to start with and finished the day with a feedback session to develop business from a ‘fresh eyes’ perspective. Their help on the day raised over £1265, which Natwest then kindly doubled to over £2500.
