Westminster Estate in Bloom!

18 Jun

Staff from Wates Living Space, part of the Wates Group, spent a day volunteering at the Westminster Estate in Sheffield. They chose, what turned out to be, the very windy Thursday 14th June to tidy up the garden areas and plant flowers around the estate.

Sheffield receives funding for Rough Sleeping Initiative

18 Jun

Sheff News

Sheffield City Council is set to receive £363,000 this year to combat rough sleeping across the city.

The news is welcomed in Sheffield as it will allow for more work to be done for rough sleepers who have been living on the streets on and off for a longer period of time.

The funding means the council will be able to do more outreach work to prevent rough sleeping form occurring, wherever possible.

Money will be used to fund suitable housing for individual rough sleepers and to give them the support they need to be able to stay in that housing instead of becoming a rough sleeper again.

This intensive housing support will be tailored to meet the needs of each individual rough sleeper, who most often have a variety of complex needs. Individuals will be worked with for longer periods of time and the tailored help will mean that they will be more likely to remain housed.

More emergency accommodation for those who find themselves in crisis will also be made available and options for longer term housing will be improved.

All of this support will be provided by the council working alongside other registered housing providers, the commissioned outreached team, voluntary services and private sector landlords.

Councillor Jim Steinke, Cabinet Members for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety said: “ We welcome this funding which will help us focus on preventing rough sleeping in Sheffield. Our main aim will be to help people to sustain their independence.

“Although we have a relatively low number of rough sleepers in the city, we recognise that those at risk of rough sleeping often have very complex personal circumstances. It’s our job to help and support them in the right way as much as possible so that it can help transform their lives into something much better than they might otherwise have hoped for. This is a welcome boost to funding to help us make a real difference this winter.”
