Support Staffordshire's Chief Executive Introduces New Model of Working

As many of our members will already be aware, Support Staffordshire has been consulting you on how we deliver services in the future. Following a series of focus groups and our online survey – prize draw winners announced below – we can now let you know the outcome.

Firstly, thank you for taking part and we are pleased to hear that overall our members understand the need for our services to change and modernise.

Chief Executive's Comment - May 2016

Building Our Movement - I hope you have all survived the year-end relatively unscathed, that new funding streams have come through with the start of a new financial year and that existing relationships and resources have been maintained. There is no doubt that the VCSE sector faces an uphill challenge, especially when it comes to the support receive from local statutory partners. In most cases diminishing resources are a fact of life for them and it’s through no ill will (in fact the very opposite) that they must pass on these ‘cuts’ to VCSEs.
