  • Develop and enhance your skills and experiences – great for your CV
  • Receive a free one day travel pass for buses, trams and trains to help you attend
  • Get access to free training courses
  • Attend a celebration event at the end of your journey to celebrate your achievements

Anyone gaining employment as a result of Walking for Purpose will get a free one month travel pass!

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
