We’re supporting more people than ever through this challenging time and currently taking more calls and webchats than usual. This might mean there is a delay when getting in touch with us, but rest assured we’re here and ready to talk.

Community Speed Watch
Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a national initiative where, in partnership with the police, members of communities use detection devices to monitor local vehicle speeds.
The volunteers report drivers exceeding the speed limit to the police with the aim of educating drivers to slow down.
If the data proves a driver is ignoring repeated warnings police can prosecute them. The aim is to:
reduce death and injury on the roads
improve the quality of life for local communities
reduce the speed of vehicles to the speed limit
increase public awareness of inappropriate speed
Volunteers are needed to keep this valued service functioning
An independent organisation set up to champion the views of patients and social care users in Staffordshire, with the goal of making services better and improving health and wellbeing.
