CircularityCONNECT "Are We Ok: An Evening for Emotional Wellbeing"

Introducing Circularity- Living the ‘Me to We’.

The next CircularityCONNECT event is on Wednesday 31 July 2019, at the National Brewery Centre, (7pm onwards) and we have themed it as “Are We OK: An Evening for Emotional Wellbeing”. You are all invited to join an evening of thoughtful presentation and discussion. You don’t need to book, just turn up; we don’t even charge entry.

The Right Start: Adult Safeguarding Awareness

This training is currently funded by Staffordshire County Council. To access this session for FREE you must be a member of Support Staffordshire or Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services. Support Staffordshire reserves the right to charge you for your booking if you are not a member.

FREE places are restricted to TWO per organisation for this session so please check with your organisation before booking. Additional names can be added to a waiting list.

Places of Welcome in Uttoxeter.

Places of Welcome is a growing network of community groups, each keen to provide their neighbourhood with a place to go for a cuppa, a chat and some support if needed.   A recent addition to this network is Renew Church in Uttoxeter, which hosts a vibrant and friendly craft group on Tuesday evenings between 7.30 and 9.00pm.

Active Signposting in Cannock libraries

The libraries service across Cannock are trialling out an ‘active signposting’ project.

Active signposting is a process through which people are directed towards support available in their community to help with needs such as befriending, being more active, socialising in general etc.

Libraries already do a lot of excellent signposting, and there is opportunity to do more of this to better support local people.

Library staff will be able to call residents and have a chat about what they would like to do and where they can access support in their local area.

Voluntary Transport for the Disabled

A Community Service in Difficulty

Two years ago last December a vital Community Transport Service run by Lichfield District Council ceased due to national and local government austerity cuts. The council could not afford to run the service for the community or maintain its fleet of vehicles to the required standard for passenger transport. They are now at a stage where another local transport charity is in danger of closing down not due to any financial concerns at present but because of a lack of interest from the local community.

A new Place of Welcome in Lichfield City

Life Church in Netherstowe has joined the national Places of Welcome network, making this the twelfth Place of Welcome in Lichfield District.  Life Church has been welcoming people to its  lunch club for several years and therefore it was a natural step for this to become an official Place of Welcome. The lunch club meets at Life Church on Mondays between 12 noon and 2pm. Everybody is welcome to come along to share a meal and make new friendships.
