Recommend our trusted library of hand-picked health apps to support those in Staffordshire at risk

During the current ongoing coronavirus outbreak, we are all adapting to new ways of delivering health and wellbeing guidance and care support to our at-risk residents.

Digital health and wellbeing apps can help older residents or those with long-term conditions to manage their health at home, but there are thousands to choose from and not all apps can be trusted to offer clinical assurance and up to date advice.

Update from Your Library Service - 6 May 2020

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak all Libraries in Staffordshire remain closed, and our service, with the exception of our online offer, remains suspended until further notice.

We are continuing to offer and develop our online service, eLibrary and resources and are active on social media so there are lots of ways to use the library from home!

If you’re not already a member follow this link to join. It's easy and it's free.

Are you able to participate and help deliver a programme of online culture & creativity to support this year's Staffordshire Day?

Creativity is the focus of Staffordshire Day celebrations and organisers Enjoy Staffordshire are looking to hear from artists, creatives, makers, performers, poets, writers, film makers, musicians and anyone who would like to share or showcase their skills and entertain and inform the public through a schedule of live performances, virtual gallery visits/ exhibits, readings, talks and demonstrations, or interactive workshops that people could get involved in from their living room.

Leek Town Inclusion Day

Leek Town would like to announce its commitment to the new National Game Disability Inclusion project. This is about developing and improving accessibility to our club and our match day experience. We are working with the Football Supporters’ Association and Level Playing Field. As part of the project, we have signed up to the National Game Disability Charter which encourages football clubs to become representative of their communities and to promote inclusion for disabled fans.
