Round 1
(No decisions have been made by Community First on these projects at present)

African Womens's Health Group
The homework club has been running successfully for seven years. The majority of students that use this service come from disadvantaged backgrounds and struggling at school as a result failing to achieve national targets. Their parents mainly come from asylum seeker and refugee backgrounds and English being a second language. There was not a homework club within the Darnall area at the time to cater for these students and provide them with additional educational support in Maths and English outside the classroom and we set up this project to address this issue. The homework club has benefited many young people since its duration and aided the students to reach national targets or exceed them. It is a necessary service to provide as these children cannot get the help they need at home. This project allows them to excel in school or simply keep them on the same level as children they have that support at home.

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

Tinsley Young Women's Group
The project will offer activities for young women within Tinsley. We are a new group that has been brought together with help from staff at Tinsley Forum and Sheffield Futures to look at ways to develop work with young women. We would like to be able to put on different activities for young women, the majority of whom will be from Pakistani and Eastern European backgrounds, within a safe and friendly environment. Sheffield Futures have agreed that we can use the Pavilion in the park as a base for some of these activities on a Saturday and Sunday morning. We feel that this will allow young women a chance to use local facilities when it is quieter and there are fewer possibilities of groups of young men being around as this has proved in the past to mean that the girls miss out. We are hoping to do play and learning activities within the building, some outside activities within the park itself and a few nearby activities with small groups - bowling, cinema etc

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.

DATIC Trust
The Galeed House Project provides a community centre and regular activities for the inhabitants of Darnall, Sheffield, with the aims of
1. promoting racial and religious harmony between people of different backgrounds
2. providing opportunities to advance education in practical and other life skills;
3. providing positive, healthy and affordable activities for all ages, to improve social wellbeing
The weekly activities on a Wednesdays and Thursdays are open to women of all ages,

Future Sparks
The project will have activities which bring young people from different backgrounds together using sport and leisure to promote community cohesion and this will help reduce the tension.
Young people are congregating on the streets which is leading to criminal behaviour which has resulted in BME young people being at greater risk becoming involved in the criminal justice system and this has led to more serious crimes and sentences.
The project will have a number of sessions during the week to assist young people to improve their communication and life skills by introducing team working, conflict resolution and promoting cohesion.
Where possible we will refer young people to Darnall Forum, Youth Offending Team, Sheffield Futures and any other relevant agency.
Young people know their area best and need to be a part of, and take responsibility for, local solutions.
It is anticipated that at least 2 young people would be trained to assist in the sessions as sports coaches, and that parents would become involved to help with the sessions also, which will in turn, help to develop the skills of adults living in the area.  

Pakistani Muslim Centre (PMC)
Darnall and its immediate vicinity
have undoubtedly always posed a safe haven for migrants. With an already strong BME occupation the area has recently attracted a large number of EU Migrants. Slovakians are gradually making the largest foreign-born group in the Darnall Ward.
The proposed project is to provide activities for the BME and the EU migrants as statistics and other evidence presented below strongly indicate the need of soft activities. The proposed Community Cohesion Building Initiative (CCBI ) will focus on providing a local venue at the PMC ) and activities for all age groups.
The project will compromise of Workshops for adults and children, Interactive session, Children activities and Pastoral activities. The overriding objective of these activities would be two folds including Provision of a welcoming environment to Engage and Educate the said communities in a constructive manner and Provision of a safe environment for children adults who would otherwise congregate on streets
