Volunteers needed to improve Sheffield communities

Have your say

Sheffield Futures is searching for the next generation of volunteers who will help provide youth activities across the city.

The charity’s Sheffieldr programme has launched the Meet Joe campaign, which aims to show that anyone can get involved in making their communities a better place for the young and disadvantaged.

Volunteers are needed for a number of roles at youth clubs and upcoming events. Previous projects involved stewarding the videogame festival, Games Britannia, running workshops, and renovating buildings such as the SHINE Health Academy and Richmond Activity Club.

Volunteer Mohammed Issa, who runs ITCSS Homework Club, is firmly behind the campaign.

He said: “This is our community, we need to take part and contribute to make it a better place. We are very pleased to work in partnership with Sheffield Futures’ Sheffieldr programme, who have helped train volunteers and provided safety checks.”

n Anyone interested in contributing to a programme, or founding a new one, can visit Sheffield Futures at Star House, Division Street. It is open every Tuesday from 11am to 12.30pm and every Thursday from 1pm to 2.30pm.
