Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services (SCVYS) is the nominated lead for a local Delivery Partnership which is the contracted VCSE Strategic Partner of Staffordshire County Council. The S3 Partnership includes SCVYS, Support Staffordshire and South Staffordshire Community and Voluntary Action.S3Each of the three partner organisations contributes unique specialisms, excellent track records of delivery, diverse local networks and relationships and strong legacies. We work together at County and local levels to enable the voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors to collaborate closely with the County Council and other public and private sector partners to gain the best possible outcomes for Staffordshire communities.


Our current focus is upon the following four themes:

  • youth
  • children & families
  • adult health & care
  • place based services such as libraries and country parks

We are working together to increase the level of funding accessed by the VCSE coming from outside of the County, as well as support and increase the impact of local social action by enabling “people helping people” approaches. Whilst we maintain our unique identities, for convenience we also refer to the partnership as S3.
