Front line Initiatives

Food Provision

The pandemic has changed everything and put extra pressure on vital food provision services across Sheffield. Many of these support the most vulnerable in our city.

Each week Together for Sheffield hosts a forum where Food Provision, 3rd sector, Sheffield City Council and other agencies share expertise to help them work better together.

These meetings have:

  • Helped coordinate donations and resources
  • Increased front line effectiveness through knowledge sharing
  • Helped facilitate new partnerships
  • Created a forum for the sharing of best practice

"There is no arguing about the value of projects provided by congregations in Sheffield. What we have to do is get everyone looking at the future through a shared lens."

– Sheffield Star

When it comes to the good in our city – we celebrate, catalyse and connect initiatives that make a difference.

Below are some of the recognised projects – front line initiatives – that we have either catalysed, launched or supported.

Universal Credit Buddies

One Mentoring

Sheffield Business Together

PDU Wellbeing Ambassadors

“In the coming months, the roll out of Universal Credit will prove most challenging for those with least resources to deal with the challenge. The church, in glad collaboration with other faith communities, will be doing all we can to serve and support those most affected — as well as seeking changes to the system so that the system itself also serves and supports the most needy”.

– The Rt Revd Dr Pete Wilcox, Bishop of Sheffield.
