Scheme boosts reading skills

Have your say

YOUNG people needing help with their reading and writing are being offered one-to-one support at an increasingly popular Sheffield initiative.

Cellar Space is based at The Furnival, a community building in Verdon Street, Burngreave, and the project is backed by the South Yorkshire Community Foundation.

The scheme is aimed at 11 to 16-year-olds who are finding it difficult to cope with mainstream school, and around 40 young people are referred each year.

There is also work on boosting personal self-esteem and confidence.
