Now closed to visitors due to government social distancing rules, Heeley City Farm (HCF) still has a role to play in the care of the community.
Its cafe and garden centre are also closed, but The Farm still has a lot to offer in terms of help it provides to adults with special educational needs (SEN).
These clients are regarded as ‘vulnerable’ by the Government and so are able to attend under current restrictions.

Ally Lalloo, Learning Difficulties Manager, says she keeps in touch via phone with some of their more vulnerable clients, who may need extra support.
She said: “Most of the facility users are with their families,so are being well cared for.”
While the number of farm staff coming into work has been cut to a minimum, a spokeperson for the farm said it still endeavors to re-deploy other staff throughout the care community.
The farms chief executive is set to meet representatives from Voluntary Action Sheffield to discuss the redeployment of staff.
