Community Buddies - Castle Ward, Tamworth

NEW 12 month pilot  - Community Buddy scheme to support local residents that live in the Castle Ward in Tamworth. 

Support Staffordshire will be recruiting and training a team of volunteers to become community buddies to offer a friendly ear to local residents, signposting and supporting accessibility to voluntary, community and health services.

The purpose is to connect community members with community buddies to enable them to attend local groups and to encourage and assist people facing barriers to access support within their local community.

Group hoping to help tackle isolation in Lichfield and Burntwood through cycling project

A local group is hoping to help isolated members of the community to get out and experience – and remember -the joy of cycling.

Lichfield Re:cycle, which already reconditions used bikes, provides free long term loan bikes to those in need and organises community cycling events, has been touring Lichfield and Burntwood with a trishaw. Community groups have been invited to take a ride in the rickshaw style vehicle, to see whether there is any appetite for a ride service to be offered locally.
