Ward Pot Money Available to South West Sheffield Groups & Projects

3 Oct

Do you have an activity you’d like to deliver or an improvement you’d like to make to your local area? Do you need equipment or room hire costs, IT equipment or cake funds to deliver your activity or support your neighbourhood?

The Councillors’ Ward Pots aim to support stronger, successful communities by making grants available to local voluntary, community, and self-help groups and projects that want to make a difference in their local community and which contribute to at least one of the ward priorities.

We’ve funded play equipment for play groups, tea & cake for social clubs, walking paths for schools and neighbouring communities to get active, information boards, chairobics sessions, porta-loos and bouncy castles for festivals, volunteer expenses, ovens for baking groups, room hire for meetings, community defibrillators, public benches, seeds & bulbs for the street scene, hi-vis arm bands to encourage children walking to school, the list goes on……

If you think we can help you in any way, or want some advice on getting something started, please get in contact and speak to Abby on 0114 2037212 or email abby.wilson@sheffield.gov.uk

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.
