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 are we 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.

How you can take part.

If you live, work or study in Staffordshire, we want to hear your views. You can take part here by completing the survey – just click the ‘Take Survey’ button above or below.

You can also share your story on how you have helped your community by Sharing your Story’ with us – tell us why you did it, what you did, and what you and the community got out of it.


What we will do with your answers

After the closing date, all information received will be analysed by the Council and a written summary report of the key findings will be produced to support the development of a Staffordshire Communities Strategy.

Your answers are anonymous and the survey results will be stored securely within Staffordshire County Council’s engagement system. We will also publish the results on Let’s Talk Staffordshire.
