Last week Michelle Dickinson, Head of Philanthropy and Programmes and, Philanthropy Coordinator Rachael Farrell visited the Sharrow Community Forum.
Sharrow Community Forum are a community development trust established in 1997, which works to strengthen communities in the Sharrow area of Sheffield. They work with the local community to improve services, bring people together, build the community’s voice, and help to make the local community a better place to live.
Michelle and Rachael met with Jonathan Roberts, CEO and Patrick Meleady Volunteer Advisor where they found out about their fantastic new project to redevelop their existing Highfield Adventure Playground building into a state of the art environmentally conscious youth hub.
The new service will expand and enhance their current youth work provision but also, importantly, provide space to co-locate services for young people including health services, statutory services and other community led projects. Young people supported by Sharrow Community Forum played a key role in developing this exciting new project by working with architects and designers to reflect their needs and aspirations for the space.
We wish Sharrow Community Forum all the best with their project and look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the community.
