Year 3

Darnall Young Peoples Club
Darnall Young Peoples Club will work to develop activities that bring together young people from different backgrounds and encourage adults and young people from these communities to act as volunteers positive role models.
We will work with young people to develop a full program of activities that will support and help them achieve the outcomes that have been identified. We will look to develop the use of Darnall Education Centre to be used as a base for project work for young people.  We will set up a program of activities for young people that meet project outcomes through the delivery of activities defined through consultation with young people and groups.

Darnall Wellbeing Allotment
Darnall Wellbeing Allotment is situated beside High Hazels Park on top of the Hill of Health overlooking the city.
It is a calming and satisfying place to be. There is an Orchard of well cared for apple trees and rows of soft fruit bushes. A polytunnel that is surrounded by vegetable beds, raised beds and an herb garden.
A multicultural meeting place in the heart of the city, giving low income families and cash strapped individuals, a garden to tend. Somewhere to meet and have a cuppa and a chat and share some laughter and salad.
Equipping people with the skills and work ethic they need to work an allotment of their own. Volunteers learn valuable skills in food growing and enjoy the health giving fruits of their labour as a reward.

Future Sparks
The project will engage sport and leisure as a major platform for lifelong learning and skills development. The project will be a social education programme designed to assist young people to enhance their ability at self-management, greater skills, team working, conflict resolution and concentrate on early intervention, which can steer young people away from criminal behaviour, engaging with young people before negative behaviour patterns emerge or are ingrained is the most effective means of prevention.

Lote Tree Academy
Lote Tree Academy: School consists of primarily an emphasis on the education. Currently we have classes running for Literacy, Numeracy, and Arabic and Urdu language. However we also hope to teach other community languages such as Bengali, Slovak, Somali and demand for any other languages from the community.

Philimore Youth Club
Our plan is to have an open access youth club on a weekly basis during term time where young people can come and engage in positive activities.  Activities will be run in a safe, fun and friendly environment and encourage young people to be more active. Activities will include arts and crafts, team building games, rounders, football, athletics and many other sports which will be lead by Activity Sheffield.  We will encourage the young people to tell us what they want to do as well as well as encouraging all participants to try out new activities such as boccia and goalball.   
These activities will promote healthier lifestyles whilst also providing young people with a safe and positive environment in which to socialise and make new friends. 

Tinsley Green Football and Futsal Development Project
Aim: To Engage 8 - 12 year olds and 12 - 14 year olds from Tinsley into new futsal game by providing a safe environment for them to build self esteem, see positive role models and football ( futsal) as a means of building social cohesion. The project will also involve 16-19 years old as coaches and volunteers also and empower parents.

Tinsley Over 60's Group
The project works with older people in the community to develop common interests and encourage participation in activities for older people. We offer activities for over 60's including a luncheon club and bingo and encourage new participation in the activities through word of mouth and advertising. We have been running as a group within Tinsley for many, many years and want to be able to continue to run the group and offer the activities that we do which help to develop health and wellbeing activities for over 60's, encourage community cohesion and provide a safer place within the community where people in their 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's can socialise and attend structured activities

TWIL Youth Club
The project will offer a base for activities with young people to take place over the Summer holidays. There is currently no youth club or indoor base for youth work or activities with young people to take place within Tinsley and current youth work session provided by Sheffield Futures are for a1.5 hour period on a Friday night. We want to use the computer suite and classroom at the Tinsley One Stop Shop to offer activities for young people and deliver other sessions within Tinsley to work with young people in their community. Tinsley has been without a youth club for nearly 3 years and we want to offer young people a safe place where they can meet friends, learn new skills and help build a safer neighbourhood through engagement, learning and games.

Amy's House
Amy's House caters for children aged 5-18 and provides Saturday and holiday sessions at Ballifield Primary School, Handsworth. Staff at Amy's House are experienced and have an empathetic approach.
We work to reduce ignorance and prejudice faced by individuals with special needs through increasing awareness and understanding. The centre provides children with social interaction, care, education and exercise in a fun and stimulating environment, amongst a team of passionate and experienced carers who bring joy into their young lives.

Impact Living
Impact Living aims to provide affordable quality furnished homes with support for all young people enabling them to achieve their full potential.
We encourage ambition and learning; aiming to provide support, advice and training to find employment and new opportunities.
We encourage young people to be responsible members of their local community by enabling them to take positive steps into taking control of their lives; promoting independence and engagement.
We aim to transform lives by developing innovative and creative solutions to tackle problems; working with each young person through a personal action plan in addition to working with relevant agencies who share our aims ensuring each person's needs are met.
The Impact Living experience places an emphasis on people's safety and their feeling of wellbeing, encouraging engagement through social activities to help foster a sense of community; offering a new lifestyle choice for those who aim to improve their quality of life.

Darnall Junior Football Club
Darnall Junior Football Club was formed to bring children from all backgrounds to come together and enjoy playing the sport of football. Not only is this a hobby for young people but it is also a way of keeping away from anti-social behaviour and has a big effect on long term community cohesion of bringing all groups together as one. Currently we have children from 5 different backgrounds who have never met and have formed a friendship by playing football on weekends.

Tinsley Tree Project
Tinsley Tree Project wish to undertake green space improvements in Tinsley, working with the local community.
The activities are as detailed below:
Enhancement of Tinsley Community Orchard
We will plant a further 12 trees within the Community Orchard situated on open space adjacent to Tinsley Community Allotment.
Working with children from Tinsley Junior School and local volunteers, trees will be planted as part of a public planting event 
Maintenance and management of Tinsley's green assets
We will maintain and manage Tinsley's green assets but more specifically those which do not benefit from any existing maintenance regime provided by e.g. Sheffield City Council / Sheffield Homes / Keir or Amey.
These assets include the grounds of Tinsley One Stop Shop and the shrub beds on St Lawrence Road, Harrowden Road and Infield Road.
Volunteering days will be organised at which we will invite the community participate in these activities.

Tinsley Disabled Luncheon Club
Tinsley Disabled Luncheon Club provides a setting for elderly and disabled residents of Tinsley where they can meet to socialise and be provided with a home cooked meal once a week. The project is a long standing project within the community which is a lifeline for many of it's users being the only weekly activity that users undertake and is one where members are looked after and fed a proper meal. The vast majority of users of the group are extremely elderly (in their 80's and 90's) and all have problems with mobility and health related issues. The club provides people with a safe environment for them to attend and plays a major role in addressing the needs of users and helping with any difficulties or problems they may have at home. The group who attend are very well looked after by the project and this allows for friendships to be made and links to service providers who can help who wouldn't have been aware of issues otherwise. The group also check up on members if they don't attend to make sure they are ok and not ill, the group needs funding to provide transportation to and from the club for disabled users.

Friends of Handsworth
We aim to represent Handsworth at the consortium and ward meetings and to engage in projects that affect the whole of the East area. We will deliver public meetings, courage community engagement within our local community and take part in community care activities i.e. park care and maintenance and social activities around Christmas

Darnall Dementia Group
We would like to raise funds for volunteer support - lunch and travel. Volunteers play an important role at DDG supporting people with dementia in the day centre, helping them feel welcome and valued and contributing to the warm and friendly atmosphere we aim to create. Genuine friendships are formed, boosting well-being and confidence on both sides. Volunteers come from all walks of life, unemployed people looking for experience to help get work, young people hoping to get into training or employment, refugees and asylum seekers wanting to make a contribution to society while building up their skills, people with disabilities and retired people wanting to help. We aim to ensure that volunteers get satisfaction and are helped to achieve their goals in life. Most volunteers are on limited incomes, and our policy is that no volunteer should be out of pocket from attending the group.
