local area comittee plan gets go-ahead from council Last Thursday, Sheffield City Council gave the go ahead for seven new Local Area Committees (LAC), which seek to revolutionise how citizens can influence the decisions that matter to them and their communities. In May 2021 the council will transform its approach to the planning and delivery of services, with greater focus, responsiveness, and accountability to the different needs of communities across the city. The proposal sets out to provide each Committee with £100k towards re-building their local area post-pandemic, with an additional £100k proposed to tackle flytipping and graffiti specifically.

Alongside the investment of funds, each LAC will have dedicated Street Wardens and officers working on matters such as local parks, tackling parking problems, community safety, youth services, delivering cleaner and greener streets, housing and more. There will also be a dedicated Housing Officer who will provide reports and details, including housing repairs, to the Committee and the work of the housing service will be held to account, allowing for greater local accountability. Councillor Bob Johnson, Leader of Sheffield City Council, said: “We’re serious about empowering our communities, making sure they have the tools at hand

to shape their local area in a way that benefits them. This is far from a return to Community Assemblies, we will go much further than they ever did, with each LAC working much more closely with the council and holding us to account. There’s significant investment into the resource each Committee will receive, and this is just the start. I’m really excited to see local areas take shape and how working with our communities will make that happen.” The Committees will become the platform for communities, public services, community organisations and the council to work together to achieve the things that citizens want to

see in their areas. This way, we will be making the most of existing local networks and relationships and be in a position to build new collaborative partnerships. Each of the Committees will have a senior named officer working with them to provide a direct point of contact and bring closer alignment to community needs. Councillor Paul Wood, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety at Sheffield City Council, said: “I’m passionate about our communities, and I’m really pleased that each LAC will benefit from dedicated officers covering a variety of local issues. For instance,

I know how important housing and repairs are to residents across the city, and for the committees to have direct access to a housing officer is a huge step forward. Not only does this provide reassurance, but it provides the opportunity to scrutinise decisions and shows transparency. Our ambition remains the same; to engage, empower and enable communities, making sure the right decisions are made at the right times and at the right level. I hope we’ll see huge numbers of Sheffielders getting involved in the things that matter to them most and I can’t wait to see it in action.”

They have set up Challenge 7 - people

There have been many positive responses from participants saying that its really raised their spirits during lockdown and created a sense of community in Sheffield. Their story: Inspired by the 7 hills of Sheffield where Cavendish Cancer Care is based, your mission is to set yourself a challenge

minimum target of £70 - however the more you can raise, the better! (the harder which incorporates the challenge you set, the number 7.

So, what cancer is having on them or their loved will your challenge 7 ones. Whether this be be ? by proving therapy We would encourage sessions to a cancer for all participants to set themselves a patient to ease

the pain of cancer treatment, specialist support to a child who doesn’t know how to express their emotions because their parent has cancer, or giving a someone caring for a loved one an unemotional ear to express their fears without fear of

iconic sheffield building to be transformed historic friendly Age UK Sheffield has announced that Heritage Fund to begin turning this plan society plans for they have received formal permission into a reality. The project is going to have from the National Lottery Heritage Fund such a positive impact on the community re-start of meetings to start the redevelopment of the Old and provide some amazing opportunities Coach House in Hillsborough Park, after signing the lease with Sheffield City Council. This is a big step forward for the project which will see the local charity convert the grade II listed building into a cafe and community hub that will provide activities and events for the community. The lease that was officially signed on March 1st includes a long term lease for both the Old Coach House building and the Potting Shed that sits to the side of the Walled Garden. Once converted, the Potting Shed will be used to provide dementia friendly activities from crafting and woodwork to gardening and sewing. Age UK Sheffield are hoping that the restoration and building work will begin in April. Steve Chu, Age UK Sheffield CEO, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that the lease has been signed and we have been given the go ahead from the National Lottery

for older people across Sheffield to engage in inclusive and exciting activities and events, which will have a real positive impact on reducing the loneliness and isolation faced by so many.” Councillor Mary Lea, Cabinet Member for Culture, Parks and Leisure at Sheffield City Council said: “Hillsborough Park is already one of Sheffield’s most popular parks, but this development will really take it to the next level. As well as the important benefits the scheme will bring to those living with dementia, it will also provide brand new café and toilet facilities to all visitors, and will preserve the wonderful heritage of the Old Coach House building. With developments also progressing for our All Wheeled Bike track, Hillsborough Park is set to be a real leisure destination, serving many communities and improving the lives of local people. I can’t wait to see it take shape later this year.”

have you completed your 2021 census? Census day was yesterday, but it is vital those who have not yet completed, do so as soon as possible. Sunday March 21 marked the day that millions of people across England and Wales completed key questions about themselves and their households to ensure local services in every community are informed by the best information possible. However, for those who have not yet submitted their online or paper questionnaires or have maybe misplaced their invitation letter, there is lots of help available. “The information you provide needs to be about who usually lives in your household on Census Day, which was Sunday March 21, however if you’ve haven’t completed it yet, please do so – there’s still time to,” the Office for National Statistics’ deputy national statistician Iain Bell said. “Every household should have received their letter inviting them to take part and we’ve had a great response so far. If you haven’t, or you have misplaced your letter, you can head online to www.census.gov.uk and request a new unique access code. There is plenty of help available, including face-to-face assistance at local Census Support Centres. Field officers will soon start calling at households who have not completed their census. They will follow social distancing

and COVID-safe guidelines, supporting people to take part. They will be equipped with PPE and will never need to enter anyone’s home. They’ll be operating much like a postal or food delivery visit.” The results from the census will shed light on the needs of different groups and communities, and the inequalities people are experiencing, ensuring the big decisions facing the country following the pandemic and EU exit are based on the best information possible, through the anonymised answers provided. The ONS will never share personal details and no-one, including government bodies, will be able to identify you in census statistics. Personal census records will be kept secure for 100 years, and only then can future generations view it. If people do not complete their census, they may have to pay a fine of up to £1,000. For more information, including how to find a local census support centre, please visit www.census.gov.uk.

They are a non-profit mutual run by members for members, and do their best to improve the quality of people’s lives through friendship, care and charity. Below is a recent press release outlining their plans to once more help people in South Yrokshire meet in a friendly, helpful atmosphere. “Off the back of the government’s recent roadmap announcement, we’re putting plans in place to re-start our face-to-face social events. While many of our group’s members can’t wait to get out again and re-connect, there are some who feel that their confidence and mental health have been knocked for six this past year. We’ve been in regular touch with our 700 local members throughout the pandemic. Sadly, some have lost someone close, and the majority have felt the daily struggle of staying at home to keep themselves and others safe. As social restrictions ease and we’ve got routes back to a more normal way of life, we know that many people’s normal will be very different to the one they once knew. So much time has passed and we appreciate that it might feel incredibly daunting to step out and socialise again. We’re going to be there for all our members to help them re-adjust at their own pace. But if anyone else feels that they too are in need of some gentle, friendly support or encouragement, then we’ve always room for more within our friendship group. We’ll be looking to safely restart our outdoor events from mid-April earliest and indoor ones from mid-May. We’ve also lots
