The Made in Stoke-on-Trent Network is for people who were born, educated, lived or worked in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire or who have other links back to the area. It’s moving things on from warm thoughts about Sir Stanley Matthews, Roy Sproson, pikelets and pottery towards encouraging people into positive action to help the city that made them and to help its current and future population. The project is hosted at Staffordshire University but was set up on behalf of the entire city. It is backed by partners including Staffordshire University, Keele University, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Stoke City Football Club, Port Vale Football Club, YMCA North Staffordshire, The Community Foundation for Staffordshire and private philanthropists.
