We provide development support and advice to local voluntary and community groups throughout South Staffordshire. We also carry out funding searches and help develop bids with groups. Whilst we offer support to all groups there is a local focus on working with children and younger people, and older people.
We are ready to place people in their perfect volunteer opportunity through our network of 100s of local community and voluntary groups. We also provide best practice support and training to groups and individuals.
We work very closely with the local South Staffordshire Work Clubs. Our volunteer duty officers will be on hand offering advice on how volunteering can help job seekers gain vital skills that will help them into employment.
Our Care Navigation Co-Ordinator utilises community resources to provide social, non-medical remedies to those over 50 with multiple complex needs, people with a long term health condition, the frail elderly, and carers. This helps people to better self-manage their illnesses and increase their independence.
We provide a variety of training courses relevant to local communities and its voluntary and community sector. Topics include First Aid, Computers for Beginners & Intermediates, Committee Skills, Project Planning, Finance, Food Hygiene, Funding, Marketing & Social Media.
We facilitate the Locality Working Group, a district partnership of adult learning providers in South Staffordshire, promoting and planning collaborative working and sharing information and best practice. Everyone who has an interest in adult learning is welcome to join.
