Suffolk County Council message cascader campaign

Suffolk County Council are highlighting the importance of local councils signing up to this campaign. They highlighted this campaign a couple of weeks ago but this is very much a call to action.  In the current climate it has never been more important for all agencies and stakeholders involved in local government, voluntary, charitable and the social enterprise sector to work together.  Local councils are a critical link to our local communities and your feedback from the SCC needs poll in May highlighted above anything else that you wanted clear, up to date and consistent information you can use to help local people.
