Improving community places & spaces

Who are we

Placing children & young people at the heart of change

With over 120,000 children and young people in Sheffield, we believe that by centring their voices and understanding their lived experiences, together, we can make a lasting change.

We work side by side with local communities to break down barriers of inequality by providing a safe space for support, resources and opportunities for empowerment.

“Before this work began, my community wasn’t engaged with services or support.  People felt nervous about asking for help from services.”

What we do

Our Area Hubs

We work to really listen and understand  the issues that face young people in Sheffield. 

By partnering with local organisations and groups, we’re able to identify & address local community issues of inequality, placing young people at the centre to create lasting change.
