Make your Mark on the Health of Sheffield

Make your Mark on the Health of Sheffield

Many of you will know that as well as the seven individual hubs that advise the Council, the Equality Hub Network ( EHN ) also runs a number of intersectional/ cross-hub working groups, which aim to get to grips with issues of common concern in the city.

The Health Working Group is in need of some new members, particularly as this is a major priority for nearly all the hubs. Similarly, it is an extremely important area of work for the Council and city partners.

The group so far has discussed:
• The health and wellbeing strategy for the city
• Mental health provision and support for children and adults
• Sexual health
• Blood disorders
• Social care packages
• Hormone provision for trans people
• Crisis/urgent care

The Equality Hub Network is also planning on revitalising the EHN Board to have thematic meetings focusing on the big issues affecting Sheffielders. The Network will invite Councillors and Senior members of Council staff along to hear what the Hubs have to say, what their concerns are, as well to hear about what the council is doing on certain issues and get involved in designing projects.

The Health Working Group meets approximately four times a year and travel expenses are available. If you want to get involved with the Health Working Group or other cross Hub Working groups on Hate Crime and Employment and Benefits please email equalitiesandinvolvement@sheffield.gov.uk .

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.

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 :)
