    Could You Volunteer to Peer Support?

    We are looking for around 10 volunteers to help us design and deliver peer support group workshops to people going through the direct payments process. The first stage will be to work with our Community Network Coordinator to create four different workshops based on your lived experience and for this stage we can pay volunteers a small co-production fee.

  • Santa's Surprise and Our Thanks

    Santa's Surprise and Our Thanks

    Everyone loves a surprise in their Christmas stocking. Thanks to the crotchet and felting skills and kind efforts of our staff and volunteers we’ve been enclosing a little surprise Christmas tree decoration into our PPE deliveries. Your responses were very heartwarming to hear back, thank you. We’d also like to say thank you to our volunteer PPE delivery drivers who have made over 800 deliveries. Without their hard work hundreds of disabled people in Sheffield would be without PPE, and consequently without the vital care and support their PAs and carers provide. Thank you!

  • A Special Thank you to all our Volunteers

    A Special Thank you to all our Volunteers

    Volunteer’s Week ( 1 – 7 June ) is an annual celebration of the good work done by volunteers across the country. It’s an especial reminder to us all this year to take the time to say thank you to the millions of volunteers who have come forward during the Coronavirus outbreak to give their time to help and support vulnerable people in their community. The work we do at Disability Sheffield would not be possible without our valued volunteers who help us to deliver our services – answering information enquiries, providing advocacy support, writing about news and events , providing IT support, serving on the Disability Hub Committee, helping with admin, answering the phones, supporting Sheffield Cycling 4 All and Sheffield Voices learning disability group, filming videos, the list is getting longer ! During the past few months you’ve continued to support us from your homes while you are shielding and we cannot thank you enough.

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 :)

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.
