What is Team Staffordshire?
Team Staffordshire is a voluntary sector led partnership, who co-operate to increase investment into Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent; and also to influence public policy for the benefit of local communities. Specifically:
Announcement from Stafford and Rural Homes:-
'Jobseekers in Stafford and surrounding areas are being offered even more help in their efforts to find work thanks to a new partnership between Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) and Support Staffordshire.
The Mayor of Stafford Borough, Cllr Peter Jones, was amongst the first to offer his support for the new initiative when he helped to launch the ‘Work Club’ at Stafford Library.
Announcement from Cerebral Palsy Mid Staffordshire:-
'We are a local charity that supports people with cerebral palsy and related disabilities, including offering IT training sessions on weekday afternoons.
We have recently moved our computer suite to a lovely new room at the Northfield Centre, off the Stone Road in Stafford - a setting which offers parking and a café. We are about to be in a position to offer other organisations the opportunity to use the suite at other times - for a modest charge - on a one-off or block-booking basis.
Arthur Rank Centre started Computers for Rural People to provide rural communities, individuals and groups with high quality, fully-refurbished second hand computers at very low cost to encourage people to take the first step. If you live or work in a rural area they can supply a fully functioning computer for as little as £130.
You could be part of Prince’s Trust Team 353!
The program starts in Tamworth on 14th March 2016, and also on 4th July 2016 and 17th October 2016.

In the last five years SARH has seen a huge increase in the number of customers that have chosen to find a home, pay rent, report a repair and get in touch via www.sarh.co.uk and e-mail or contact them via their Freephone number.
They have reviewed the numbers of customers visiting the SARH facility at Greyfriars and following a period of consultation and taking customers views into consideration, the decision was made to close this facility on Friday 29th January.
