How the north ward pots were spent this year

20 Mar

Each year the ward councillors across the city are given a ward pot. This is to spend on local projects to help improve the community. As well as giving grants to many community groups to help them keep up their great work, some specific projects were funded through the ward pot.

This year the Stannington Ward Councillors supported the Friends of Stannington Library to take on running the library.

In the West Ecclesfield Ward the Councillors chose to fund Activity Sheffield to run summer activities in the area.

A pilot project to get befriending volunteers linked to lunch clubs was set up in the East Ecclesfield Ward.

And in Stocksbridge the Steel Valley Project was giving funding to help them take on and support extra volunteers.

5 ways to improve well being

7 May

Just saw this and thought it would be good to share – 5 ways to improve well being

Improving health and well being is one of the ‘Local Area Partnership’ priorities for the north Sheffield area. This ‘Local Area Partnership’ is made up of organisations and departments that work in the north area to improve health and wellbeing and local councillors.

The group are currently looking at what we can do to reduce social isolation, how to ensure more people know about activities in the area and how to get more people online so that they can access vital services more easily.
