Sheffield Mind celebrated the signing of an exciting Partnership Agreement with South Yorkshire Fire and rescue this week

The agreement underpins our existing mutually supportive relationship and allows for SYFR community service volunteers to support the activities of the Sheffield Mind Magpies Project, which supports people with hoarding issues.

Having this additional resource will make a big difference to the service and volunteers will help staff with client decluttering, reorganising items in the home, attendance at Group events, provision of fire safety advice & the transfer of items from homes to charity, recycling &/or waste centres.

We have worked closely with SYFR over the past few years to develop our hoarding support services and having the additional volunteers will make a big difference to the project and our users.
