West Ecclesfield Ward – Councillors’ Priorities 2018/19

Following consideration of statistics, consultation, Councillor enquiries and input from local service providers, your Councillors for the West Ecclesfield ward have identified the following priorities for 2018/19 that we will focus on in partnership with local service deliverers, community organisations and local businesses.  

 

Community development and engagement

  • Develop the capacity and support local community groups so that they are able to run a range of community activities or services, especially in neighbourhoods of most need.
  • Support groups who are developing ways of tackling Digital Inclusion, Social Isolation and Financial Advice.
  • The target areas for this year’s Ward Pot are High Green and Burncross.

 

Children and Young People

  • Work with service providers and local community organisations / youth groups to ensure young people have access to activities and are supported in their options around education, training and work.
  • Support organisations developing activities for children and encourage services to develop more recreational activities for young people that aim to deter them from anti-social behaviour.

 

Highways and Environmental

  • Support work that aims to improve the local parks and deter dog fouling and anti-social behaviour.
  • Look at ways to improve traffic calming and traffic enforcement.
  • Continue to work in partnership with local organisations to tackle on road/off road motorbike nuisance.

11 Apr

wow

As we get older it is important to remain as active as possible, not only to keep in physical shape, but it has been proven that exercising and socialising with others is key to improving mental health.

In an attempt to combat social isolation across Sheffield, Home Instead have put together a What’s On Where Guide which provides a list of easily accessible activities in Sheffield such as; Choir Groups, Dance Classes, Art groups, Lunch Clubs, Coffee Mornings and many more!

Home Instead hope their guide will encourage people to get involved in the community and ultimately, reduce social isolation.

Take a look at the Home Instead WOW guide using the link below!

Sheffield GPs launch fresh crackdown on people missing doctors appointments

11 Apr

Sheffield GPs have launched a fresh crackdown on people missing appointments – with a little help from city school children. GPs at surgeries in Chapeltown and High Green are part of a pilot to urge people to cancel their appointments if they can’t attend.

People missing appointments without letting their practice know costs the NHS in Sheffield millions each year. Chapelgreen GP Practice worked with Ecclesfield School to create ‘DNA (Did Not Attend) Man’, the superhero figurehead for the campaign which is now being rolled out across their neighbouring practices.

The GP group has been praised after introducing small changes over a six month period. These include approaching patients who fail to attend on a regular basis, and adding a ‘patient promise’ at the end of each appointment booking, asking people to promise to cancel the appointment is they can’t attend. Practice bosses said they’ve seen a ‘significant reduction’ and are confident to bring the figure down even further.
