Launching Connect 3 - A housing focused mental health service

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new and innovative housing focused mental health service which we will be delivering in partnership with South Yorkshire Housing Association.

Connect 3 is a bespoke service which is designed according to the client's needs. There are three core elements that individuals can access and move between as necessary.

 

The three key services are:

  • Short-term accommodation with specialist support

  • A ‘transitional landlord service’ where we’ll work with you to manage your own tenancy

  • Floating support for you in your own home

Staff will work with people on a one to one or group basis to help them engage in activity that will improve their health and fitness,  help them to develop the practical skills they need to manage their financial responsibilities and tenancy and also help them develop social skills and access new networks and interests.

 We are Recruiting - volunteers and staff required

Volunteers - Age Better Sheffield

Sheffield Mind is working on an innovative project to help older people who are socially isolated as a result of their mental wellbeing.

We are looking for volunteers aged 50+ who have 3-4 hours a week to spare and can identify with the issues that people may be experiencing.

All volunteers will receive comprehensive training and support.
