Community Projects

Safer Communities CIC gets involved in lots of community activities and initiatives across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

We specialize in delivering or supporting projects which help to make Staffs a safer, happier, healthier and nicer place to live.

So far we have supported young people through delivery of Princes Trust courses and providing Street Stadia sports activities to young people. We have also helped people to live healthier lives through the Family Food and Fun Programme and feel more connected to their local area through the Coffee Station project at Newcastle. We help Staffordshire Fire and Rescue to promote their free community facilities and have complimented this through the Safer Communities Pledge and Tamworth Community Garden.

If you are a community group and would like Safer Communities CIC to support your goals then get in touch with us.
This group is all about supporting people who feel lonely, maybe after the bereavement of a relative or friend, or perhaps after a period of illness which may have made going out or talking to people tricky. The volunteers who run the sessions explore individual’s interests and connects them to community-based groups within the area. There are also crafts on hand for people to try, including LEGO, mindful colouring, board games and glass painting.

Advice and Guidance
This session is free for anyone to join and provides an understanding of coping strategies to help members to deal with stressful situations. IE Anxiety management, positive thinking, mindfulness. External organisations are invited to come in and do a talk on specific topics that the group identify as an issue or subject of interest. The objective of the group is to encourage members to talk about the things that they need help with in a safe, non- judgemental environment. “By reducing worry we reduce stress and anxiety and by giving members the opportunity to face things head on will equip them with the knowhow of how to solve problems, should one arise in their life”.
