Citizens Advice Sheffield will be working in partnership with Sheffield City Region on a new project called Building Better Opportunities.
Building Better Opportunities – Sheffield City Region (BBO SCR) is an integrated, person centred service for people with physical and mental health conditions, learning disabilities and complex needs. It’s based on Individual Placement Support, a “place then train” approach that’s shown to be twice as effective as traditional approaches.
We have released our new service development and delivery plans for 2018/19, which our Board of Trustees approved yesterday. Here is the ‘plan on a page‘ for a summary of what is included in the plans.
From 14 February 2018, Citizens Advice Sheffield will be offering a service from the library space at the Learning Zone, Parson Cross. This is a good opportunity to work more closely with the complementary services provided by the Library Service, Housing and SOAR, who run the building.
We have been able to do this by relocating the service that has been running from the other end of Wordsworth Avenue. This longstanding service was open every Tuesday but the new service has been changed to a Wednesday make use of the day the library is normally closed.
The Government announced on 19 January 2018 that it will not be appealing a High Court judgment which will lead to up to 220,000 people being entitled to claim Personal Independence Payment. This decision is the culmination of four years of advice and legal casework that begin in Sheffield. We have published a briefing describing our role in securing this outcome.
