To arrange to collect your free PPE from one of the seven main family centres in the city contact Sheffield City Council’s family centre on 0114 273 5665 . The packs contain: face masks, shields, aprons and gloves.

This provision is in line with the following updated government guidance which includes information on washing hands, use of PPE, and respiratory hygiene.

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.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
