The Staunton Partnership
The Staunton Partnership was established in 2012 by The Right to Work group, to help adults with learning disabilities be part of a working community when they move on from school and college. The Right to Work team have played a fundamental role at Staunton Country Park, working together to carry out much needed tasks across the site, including minor maintenance, planting and much more. We are even lucky enough to be the inspiration for the Art Invisible group as they show off their creative skills.
The Community Forum
The forum is due to launch in 2021 and will be an opportunity for various groups throughout the local community to come together. This will offer local councillors, councils, businesses, community groups and friends groups a space to discuss matters relating to the parklands and local area. This is a great platform for our community to be connected to their country park.
Keep a look out for updates about the Community Forum.
