Let's Work Together Workshop


Do you come into contact with vulnerable people? Want to know more about referral routes so those who are most vulnerable can get the help and support that they need?

This FREE workshop aims to equip you with the tools, training and skills you need and identifies a wide range of support and signposting to local people to help them live healthy, safe and independent lives.

The Workshop will cover the following risks:

  • Cold/fuel poverty

  • Housing repairs

  • Debt

Garry Jones's Blog

One of the perennial bug bears I hear from local members in the voluntary sector is how frustrating it is to see local businesses and employee groups raising funds for Cancer Research UK, Macmillan or the British Heart Foundation (to name a few), whilst they struggle to make it by to the end of the year. The amounts involved will often be a drop in the ocean for such national ‘corporate’ charities, but locally could literally save a charity or community group from closure. Even more frustrating, is that these big names probably don’t even work locally in Staffordshire or Stoke-on-Trent.

Kendall and Wall planning to open service in East Staffordshire

Kendall & Wall Charitable Trust is trying to combat loneliness and social isolation by organising outings for elderly and disabled people. They have a number of wheelchair accessible minibuses. They are based in Lichfield but provide a service to a much wider area, including Burton on Trent.

They are planning to open a branch in Burton on Trent and are looking for an individual to head up the new branch on a voluntary basis. He/she will take the lead in setting up the new office, which may initially be in the volunteer’s own home.
