National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team launched a new initiative last week called Businesses Against Scams (BAS).

It is a simple toolkit that businesses can use to help train their employees on how to spot certain types of scams that are more prevalent within businesses due to the current pandemic sweeping the UK. 

The initiative provides free online training modules that will help staff identify and prevent potential scams.

Easy search for health and wellbeing apps

It is more important than ever to use digital health solutions to support our most vulnerable.  To aid this Staffordshire County Council has recently procured a digital tool from the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps (ORCHA) to make it easier for people to find good quality apps across different conditions and behaviours.

You can use the search to find top rated apps across different areas, such as stopping smoking, improving your mental wellbeing, keeping active and managing health conditions.

Local response to Coronavirus Emergency: Support for Vulnerable Residents Living in Cannock Chase District

There is a wide range of support available to local people – much of this within the voluntary and community sector, with national and local public sector support being implemented alongside this. 

The established Cannock and Rugeley foodbanks have been very busy. There has been extensive small, locally based and individual neighbourhood support to family, friends and neighbours. Cannock Chase is also benefitting from the establishment of a comprehensive (and growing) range of services offered from volunteers working through the Chase Coronavirus Support Network (CCSN).
