South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation has set up a Cost of Living Fund giving financial support to community groups supporting residents in the South Yorkshire region to help reduce food and fuel poverty.
Many people have been impacted by the increase in the cost of living, whether that’s through their energy bills or groceries in the shopping aisles. Sheffield City Council is committing £850,000 over 3 years through the Shared Prosperity Fund to deliver the Sheffield Cost of Living Fund.
South Yorkshire’s Mayor Oliver Coppard and the Chief Executive of South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation (SYCF), Ruth Willis have launched a fund to support the region through the cost of living crisis.
Abundance is a volunteer-run organisation which rescues, shares, cooks and processes fruit and vegetables which would otherwise go to waste from all across Sheffield. Funding contributed to the cost of skills training volunteers to lead harvesting events as well as community workshops
