Together for Sheffield

"We all see and feel this city’s divides and inequalities on a daily basis, but how many of us are doing something about it?"

- Sheffield Telegraph

Gifts for School Staff:

"We have been really pleased to be able to deliver over a thousand individually packaged gifts to school staff in Sheffield this Christmas. This is just a small and practical token of our appreciation for all that school staff have been doing during the pandemic. Whilst we realise that hand cream and chocolates won't change everything, we do hope that it provides just a little bit of comfort and healing to tired hands and bodies. Gifts were packed by local churches and sent with heartfelt prayer and support for all that school staff do for the children and young people of our city"

– Ben Harper and Dave Warman

“Together for Sheffield is an inspiration”

– Dr John Kirkby CBE, Founder of Christians Against Poverty

There are many talking shops in this city, but this is the opposite.

Faith Action Audit

Work carried out by faith groups in Sheffield is worth more than £11 million to the city – as 4,250 helpers give their time to provide over 700 projects.

Sheffield’s first Faith Action Audit, an exercise that calculated the economic value and social impact of local churches and other religious groups, found volunteers put in 1.24 million hours last year on schemes ranging from food banks to debt advice services and childcare facilities.
