#SpeakUp small grants 2017-18 - The Link Community

The Link Community is a community hub based in South East Sheffield. They run a nearly new shop and delivers other activities and services to support local people. They used their #SpeakUp grant to talk to local residents about their experiences.
Speech bubble saying

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. 

What would The Link Community like to see next?

  • We would like to go on to do further research and to develop as many case studies as possible to show how valuable support networks are in people’s lives.
  • The project has shown the important role our little community hub has in our community. It is becoming ever more needed as services get cut.
