Staffordshire is the place to start and the place to stay

Build a life in Staffordshire

With fantastic universities and vocational colleges, it’s a great place to continue your education, establish your business and put down roots.

We’re talking about ‘liveability’; the collection of all things that give us a ‘quality of life’, and Staffordshire has them in abundance. Excellent schools and universities, a great value location with quick links to major cities, high quality homes that allow younger people to get onto the property ladder; and where you are in the county, within minutes you can be in glorious countryside.

Staffordshire is the place to start and to stay, from market towns to city living, characterful villages to new communities, plus an abundance of culture and attractions right on the doorstep.
