Our focus is to constantly improve the quality of life of local people by providing a safe, clean and attractive place for residents to live and work, and encourage people to engage in developing strong communities as set out in the Stafford Borough Council Corporate Business Plan 2021-2024 (pdf 985kb).
Health in All We Do
We have committed to take a 'Health in All We Do' approach with our partners to ensure that the health of local people is paramount in everything we do.
The Health and Housing and Environmental and Health services work closely together and through partnership work with other organisations to utilise local assets and to develop more efficient and effective services for communities to access.
We support and promote a number of projects to provide ways for local people to get involved in building a better community, to participate in a more active lifestyle and to connect with other local people or service providers.
At the Council we focus on Community Development, the process of community members coming together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems that face our residents and the communities in which they live.
