Activity Sheffield's Health and Wellbeing Scheme
About Sheffield City Council
Sheffield City Council continues to face significant financial challenges as the Government further reduces its grant to the local authority. Extremely difficult decisions have had to be made over the past five years about services that the people of Sheffield care so much about.
About Activity Sheffield
Activity Sheffield has previously facilitated Miracle Cure on behalf of the City. We are extremely disappointed to have to inform you that as a consequence of these cuts we will no longer be in a position to continue this facilitation beyond 18 March 2016.
Unfortunately, the service faces a significant reduction in staff and will operate with only a small team of workers who will, in future, support groups to raise funds and organise their own activities. This is work that Activity Sheffield has done successfully in recent years – but from 1 April 2016 this will be the primary focus of our work.
These proposals were reluctantly agreed by the Council Cabinet on 17 February 2016 and will go to full Council for final approval on 4 March 2016.
