Our new partnership with the Learning Zone, Parson Cross

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.

Our role in securing PIP for up to 220,000 people

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.
