Tell us what makes your community great, and be entered into a prize draw.
Staffordshire people can help shape a long-term plan in partnership with the county council to take action and improve their communities.
Staffordshire’s communities are a huge part of what makes this such a great county. When people come together to help out, amazing things happen.
That’s why we launched #DoingOurBit in 2019 – a campaign asking residents to get involved with their communities and encouraging people to help themselves, each other, and the place that they live.
However, we know that things have changed since we started #DoingOurBit. The pandemic, and pressures from the increasing cost of living, mean that things can be tough for our communities, and people are having to adapt. We are all facing new challenges every day. With less money available and more people needing support, the council and our partners are also having to do things differently.
Why we are asking
In response to these changes, we are updating how we work with communities. We want to hear from you about what makes your community great and what matters most, as well as collect your great ideas about how we can support Staffordshire’s communities to get more involved and improve their local areas. Engaging with our communities will give us the opportunity to collect these ideas and make them part of what we do in the future, so that we can all keep on ‘doing our bit’ together to make sure Staffordshire continues to be a great place to live and work.
