We all know Staffordshire is a great place to live, work and invest where most people enjoy a good quality of life. There is also lots happening in the county and lots of great work being done to help people lead healthier and happier lives and we want to share this news with you.
We are living in very changing times and we have more choices about how we spend our time and money. We live in a global economy with more connections than ever before to friends, family, employers and information. We also have changing needs and as a Council we are changing too, to meet these needs. A good example being this e-magazine we are sending directly to your inbox, tablet or smart phone to keep you informed.
Whilst we know there will be challenges ahead and tough decisions to be made over the next few years, there are also many exciting opportunities. Working with both our public and private sector partners, communities, families and individuals, we can deliver a better Staffordshire for current and future generations.
