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.
We are delighted to inform you of the role out of Connect and Pledge within the Western Service Delivery Group.

The Western Service Delivery Group Business Support Team ran and delivered a very successful Connect and Pledge event at Cannock Community Fire Station on Tuesday 4th June, this event provided existing users of the community facilities the opportunity to engage with each other and understand how the facilities are being used helping to identify ways that they maybe able to help and support each other.
Attending the event were representatives from the following organisations / groups:

Police Cadets
Machine Embroidery
Princes Trust
Community Speed Watch
Diabetes Team
New Era Probation Service
Community First Responder
Alzheimer’s Organisation
Cannock Philatelic Society
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service

The feedback from the group was very positive with the following pledges being made:
  • Safer Roads group will offer Road Safety advice to carers with the Alzheimer’s Group. Safer Roads have also invited representatives from the Machine Embroidery to the Safer Road Community Meetings to raise their concerns about road safety in Armitage.
  • Community Fire Responders group have pledged to provide free training on CPR to the Police Cadets Group and anyone else that would require it.
  • SFRS have offered to train groups in Olive Branch which highlights fire related risks in people’s homes to professionals and carers. They have also pledged to give fire safety talks to all users of the Community Fire Station.
  • New Era agreed to share with the Probation Office the role of the Princes trust programme
  • Diabetes Support will highlight the services of New Era to individuals who come to the Support group and explain their services in addition they will also advise the group what the Stafford & Philatelic Society do and when they meet

As facilitators of the event the Business Support Team from Cannock very much enjoyed meeting all the representatives from the groups that use our facilities and we will very much look forward to working with them more closely in the future.
