Collaboration is at the heart of our approach, both within the council and with our partners, as we strive to enhance and safeguard the well-being of the people in Staffordshire. Actively involving and empowering our communities is crucial to supporting our efforts in providing assistance to all residents who are elderly or vulnerable adults.

Individual inquiries and concerns receive swift attention, ensuring that older and vulnerable adults receive the care they require and are kept safe from harm. We actively manage the care and support market to ensure its availability where needed and that it is affordable for our residents.

We offer our colleagues the opportunity to develop their skills and showcase best practices in care. If you’re passionate about delivering exceptional care, you’ve come to the right place!
