The money has been awarded to the charities by People’s Health Trust, a funding programme which invests in local people and groups with ideas to make their communities better.

Key Changes has received £47,041 for a 24 month project in Sheffield Lane Top aimed at helping women at risk of offending and those resettling into the area.

It will run weekly classes including IT, sewing, jewellery making, and cooking.

Swinton Lock Activity Centre has been awarded £47,035 for a 24 month project to expand the work of an existing programme of educational activities for adults facing social isolation, loneliness and illness and for young people either excluded or on the verge of exclusion from mainstream education due to their involvement in anti-social and criminal behaviour.

John Hume, Chief Executive of People’s Health Trust, said: “We are delighted to be investing in these local organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better places to grow, live, work and age.”
