A Sheffield service which helps members of the public has been handed a top award.

Sheffield Citizens’ Advice has been given the Citizens’ Advice ‘Stand Up For Equality’ award for its range of advice, casework services and projects to meet the needs of vulnerable people.

The service was especially recognised for its work with deaf British sign language users, people with mental health issues, travellers and ethnic minority communities.

Gillian Guy, chief executive of Citizens’ Advice said: “Good advice changes lives. Deaf people can face significant barriers when seeking advice, but the Sheffield Citizens’ Advice provides an excellent and invaluable service to deaf people across the city. This is a fantastic example of an innovative service which makes sure all parts of the community are able to get the help they need.”
