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.

In the village of Ta Prok, commune Leangdai, in the district of Angkor Thom
Well number: 1230, built 29 May 2018.

This well was sponsored by Soroptimist International Staffordshire Moorlands, who are Community Room User Group at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service Community Fire Station, Leek.

One Families story, who have benefited from this well….

Mr. Por Pim is a 33 years old farmer who lives with his wife and children in Ta Prok village, Leangdai commune, Angkor Thom district, Siem Reap province.
Mr. Pim spends long days working as a farmer, leaving home before sunrise and not returning until late evening. Mr Pim’s wife also works as a farmer, and in the village, helping to bring in additional income. Despite their working long hours, their daily income is less than $2.

In Cambodia the income of a farmer is tied to the seasons, dictating the amount of work to be done, resulting in no stable or reliable income stream. Due to this, the yield of the crops impact the amount of work available.

Mr Pim’s family previously did not have a well, and they had to use a neighbouring well whenever they needed water. Meaning that they had to carry heavy buckets a considerable distance, making something as simple as collecting water an arduous task. During the dry season they also struggled to store the water, meaning that collecting water was something that had to be done daily. Although Mr. Pim sought support from the local authorities but unfortunately no one could help them.

So when the CCDO came to the village, they assessed the needs of Mr. Pim and his family and found them suitable to become beneficiaries of the CCDO WASH Program, sponsored by Soroptimist International Staffordshire Moorlands, a Community Room User Group at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service Community Fire Station, Leek.

Mr. Pim’s family is delighted and grateful to the CCDO and particularly Soroptimist International Staffordshire Moorlands for the generous donation as they now have access to water in all seasons.
