AEDdonate - Staffordshire1000 campaign

AEDdonate  are in the process of launching a new ambitious local campaign called Staffordshire1000 on 1/5/19 in Staffordshire, which coincides with Staffordshire Day.

The campaign is to boost the number of community access defibrillators in Staffordshire and increase community awareness of the locations and knowledge of what to do in a cardiac arrest emergency. Aspirationally we would like to get an additional 1000 defibs installed in the communities of Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent, and support from Support Staffordshire Members would be hugely beneficial in our goal.

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.
