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.
Support Staffordshire are pleased to offer free online and computer training at our Burton office.
We will teach you how to make the most of computers and the internet through guided tuition. Whether you are a complete beginner or already have some knowledge, contact us today.
The sessions run on Thursdays 9.30am - 11.00am.
Team Staffordshire – a consortium of local organisations has confirmed it has bid for more than £11 million being allocated to Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent through the Building Better Opportunities Fund this November. If successful the group, which also includes the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, NHS and Local Authority support, will receive funds to support people into work or nearer to work through activities such as work placements and volunteering.
Support Staffordshire has committed to supporting local armed forces families and communities by signing the Staffordshire Armed Forces Community Covenant. The covenant, first launched in May 2012 and reaffirmed earlier this year, complements, at a local level, the national Armed Forces Covenant, which outlines the moral obligation between the nation, the government and the armed forces.
