Disadvantage of any sort throughout the county of Staffordshire.


Any money raised for the High Sheriff Fund is placed into an endowment fund, which is then invested. Each year the interest from the fund is given away as a small grants programme to community groups based in Staffordshire who are working in their community. The current High Sheriff, Ian Dudson CBE, DL, is walking the canals of Staffordshire, along with volunteers, to raise money through donations and sponsorship.
