Voluntary and community organisations play a vital role, alongside Sheffield City Council and other statutory services, in supporting people in Sheffield.
Community organisations are dealing with the many issues people face as the cost of living rises, including poor mental wellbeing and increasing poverty.
The cost-of-living crisis in the UK is here, now, and it is causing unprecedented pressures on people who might already be struggling.
We are working collaboratively with Sheffield City Council in response to the crisis, to find out the services, resources, and assets we have available across sectors, across the city and create a Network of Hubs and Welcoming Places.
Our aim, with your support, is to create an accessible directory and a map of Hubs and Welcoming Places across sectors so that everyone can find a welcoming smile, a place to sit, enjoy a little company, get warm and stay warm.
If you have got a Welcoming Place already, please tell us about your facilities and services. It should take you less than 5 minutes to complete the form available below.
