News from the Grants Team
View this email in your browser
Your Stratford, Your Say! 
Community Survey
Stratford Town Trust provides around £2 million each year to the community through its grants and activities. Since it was formed in 2001, more than £25 million has been awarded. To ensure our grants are serving the people of Stratford in the best possible way, the Town Trust is developing a community strategy to inform its future direction.

And we need your help
We are seeking input from the whole community on what works, what doesn't and what Stratford needs.

Do you have an idea for a project?
Think mental health services need more support? Or sporting activities? Better facilities for the older population or our younger generation? Tell us that too.

The survey will run from February 23rd to March 24th and is open to everyone - you do not need to be a member of the Town Trust. 

It takes just minutes to complete. Go and be part of it.

For more information, please call 01789 207111.

@WAR - Preparing for Emergencies in Warwickshire – a guide to help you

We have created a colourful and interesting guide to help you prepare yourselves for responding to a major emergency such as a large fire or flooding.
It sets out:
  • Which major emergencies are most likely to happen
  • How you can prepare yourself to deal with them
  • How you can respond to emergencies
  • What the emergency services and other response agencies do to reduce the likelihood the emergencies will happen and how we will respond if they do
  • Where you can find out more information about the risks
  • Advice on how to make a ‘grab bag’ and what to include in it.
The guide is based on the ‘risk assessment’ process, which is explained below.
