Community Connectors is a new pilot project focusing on community development and sustainability. It is a continuation of the effective grass-roots support delivered through our development support work to community & voluntary groups.

A network of volunteers are being identified and recruited at locality level to develop their skills to become ‘Community Connectors’. These key people may already be actively volunteering within their communities, are well-respected and evidence a desire to enhance community cohesion and build capacity.

With this model of community support, Community Connectors will enable hundreds of residents’ voices to be heard, new volunteers to be recruited to support community initiatives, and new ideas to address local issues to be aired, shared and acted upon.

If you would like to know more about the Community Connector’s role or how they can support you locally please contact Sabrina Sproston on 01902 851675 or sabrina.sproston@supportstaffordshire.org.uk
