Carers Quilt unveiled

At last our Carers Quilt is finished, and it was unveiled at our AGM on Friday 2 December.

Over fifty carers and former carers each contributed a square which represented their caring situation. We are immensely grateful to Sue Chantler, one of our volunteers, for putting it all together for us, taking on the mammoth task of single-handedly turning these squares into a stunning quilt, which has now taken pride of place on the Carers Centre meeting room wall.

Sheffield Carers Centre awarded new contract from January 2017

We are delighted that the Carers Centre has secured funding from Sheffield City Council for 3 years from January 2017 to provide a citywide service for adult carers.

In the summer the Council invited organisations to bid for a contract to provide a citywide carers information and advice service.  Any organisation could bid as part of a competitive tendering process which outlines the service the Council wants to be provided and the funding which is available.  We had to provide detailed information on how we would provide the service which the Council had specified, following consultation with carers.
