Neighbourhood Watch and our sponsor Co-op Insurance has just launched a nationwide search to find and celebrate some of the best and most considerate neighbours of 2018!

next door

We’re urging people to nominate the most deserving good neighbours and there is also an opportunity to put forward your ‘Hero Next Door’ for a true act of heroism.

Neighbourhood Watch and Co-op Insurance are working together on these exciting awards and anyone can nominate their good neighbours today!

We’re talking about the local heroes in your street and community whose acts of kindness and neighbourliness really set them apart.

We want to recognise the people who are making such a vital contribution to community life and encourage others to follow in their footsteps.

You don’t need to be a Neighbourhood Watch member to nominate and the person you nominate doesn’t need to be a member either.

Click here to join in– before nominations close on September 5 – and you’ll be taken to the nomination form where you can share your stories of great neighbourly activities and acts of kindness.

You can also share the link to the nominations page by cutting and pasting it from below.

With best wishes,

Public Consultation Opens – Have Your Say

14 Aug

The Council receives a payment called a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) for new building projects, which is then used to fund necessary improvements in infrastructure.

We are seeking views on our proposals to use the Local CIL (Neighbourhood Portion) in Sheffield to:

  • promote the development of Neighbourhood Plans across the city
  • ensure that areas of higher deprivation receive a fairer overall share
  • improve how local communities are involved in the decisions on how it is spent

Follow the link to comment on the proposals.

Free computer sessions

We know that many of our tenants don’t have the confidence or the know-how to access the internet. That’s why we have an arrangement with Heeley Trust to deliver free computer classes to help our tenants get online.

Being able to do things online like shopping, banking and socialising, can save you money and make things easier and more convenient. Importantly, from November you will only be able to apply for Universal Credit online.

How these classes can help you

If you’re a Council tenant and would like to do more on the internet but you’re not sure how to, or if you’re worried about having to apply online for Universal Credit, then why not sign-up to a class near you?

The classes are held at venues all across the city and are run by friendly, helpful advisors from the Heeley Trust who will help you gain the skills you need at a pace that suits you.

As well as help to apply for Universal Credit, the classes also cover lots of other topics like how to stay safe on the internet, staying in touch with friends and family, accessing health and other services and online banking.

Go to a computer session near you

You can book a computer session over the phone on 0114 399 1070 or email learningchampion@heeleydevtrust.com. Just pick the session you like and let us know you’re coming.

The sessions you can attend at your local library are:

  • Firth Park: Monday 10am – 12pm
  • Manor: Monday 2pm – 4pm
  • Totley: Tuesday 10am – 12pm
