“Staffordshire is a great county: blessed by its location, history and natural beauty, it is home to national attractions and international businesses, as well as offering a great quality of life.


Our greatest asset is our residents, and this Strategic Plan lays out how, working with others, we will help them by laying the foundation for aspiration and opportunity, providing the conditions for the creation of good jobs and by promoting good health, wellbeing and independence – particularly in later life.


There are challenges, particularly the increasing cost of looking after the most vulnerable. However, we will always help and in the next few years we will work to reverse the number of children coming into care and to shape a stable marketplace for older people to access the support they need at a cost we can all afford.


All this will be achieved by working with our residents. The response to the Pandemic demonstrated the strength and resilience of our communities and they continue to be the rock upon which all our achievements are built”.


Cllr Alan White, Leader of the Council
