Our work in the Sheffield City Region

We work across the Sheffield City Region (SCR) delivering projects, support and fundraising projects. 

Here are some of the things we've been involved in:

Sheffield’s city centre windows are in full bloom thanks to a team of apprentices at Sheffield Showcase.

Launched in 2009, Sheffield Showcase is a scheme established in partnership between Sheffield City Council, Yorkshire Forward and The Source Skills Academy. The scheme uses empty shop units in Sheffield City Centre to display the wares of local artists, designers and retailers, improving the shopping environment and helping to promote local businesses.  The scheme employs a team of apprentices who design the window displays and also work in the charity shop, First in Best Dressed, which raises money for local charities including St Luke’s Hospice, The Children’s Hospital Charity and brainstrust.
