City is under the spotlight

Have your say

SHEFFIELD hosted a showcase event highlighting innovative work in the region to help vulnerable groups into employment and housing.

The Innovation and Excellence event at the Megacentre welcomed more than 250 people from the health, voluntary and community sectors.

Also attending were clients who have benefited from projects to help people with mental health problems and learning disabilities into work and onto the property ladder.

In total, 22 projects shared their work through exhibition stands and presentations at the event.

Linda Sleney, project lead for the homes and jobs programme, said: “All the feedback we have received so far has been very positive and we’re hoping to use the results to continue forward into the future.”
