Our #SpeakUp small grants scheme awards funding to local community, voluntary, or not-for-profit groups, enabling them to engage with their communities about what matters to them. 

Recommendations from the report:

  • Working with Healthwatch Sheffield to explore how people who use these services can provide feedback to them without fear of reprisals.
  • Working with Healthwatch Sheffield and service commissioners to deliver improvements to these services that ensure that individuals feel respected and supported and that they are provided with good quality information and advice.
