Dear SDVS members, friends and partners
You may be aware that, from 1 May, a Staffordshire County Council Contract previously delivered by SDVS as part of a partnership with other CVSs across the county (SCIO)has been secured under a competitive tendering process by VAST, based in Stoke on Trent. This transfer of some of our work to VAST has meant that some of our very capable and skilled staff have been transferred under the legal process of TUPE.
SDVS has, however, considerable other contracts to deliver support services to the Voluntary and Community Sector in the Borough of Stafford. There will be no change to the services offered to member organisations. SDVS will over the next few months be assessing our delivery models to ensure that we meet demand.
Any queries or should you require support from SDVS then please feel free to contact us on the number below or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.Regards Diana Litchfield Deputy Chief Officer Stafford District Voluntary Services 131-141 North Walls Stafford ST16 3AD T: 01785 606670
