On-going support as we come out of lockdown


During the Covid-19 Pandemic we know it’s been really tough for local people so Darnall Forum are pleased to be able to offer a home support service for essential needs, which include food or well-being packs, Foodbank vouchers, children's activity packs, well-being calls by phone or social media; medication collections. 


We are able to do this thanks to the generous support of the local ward councillors and the Noel Buxton Trust.

Announcement from Sheffield City Council

Adult learning provision suspended

In light of the government announcement yesterday, 18 March 2020, and with further guidance from the Secretary of State for Education, all adult learning provision will close temporarily from close of play Friday 20 March 2020.  We are monitoring the situation daily and cannot give any definitive timeline for when normal services will resume.
I realise that this will be concerning for those that have examinations coming up over the next two weeks, and these will have to be postponed at this time.  The government has indicated they will make further announcements regarding this in the coming days, and we will await this guidance to make any further decisions concerning examinations and achievement of qualifications.
We understand how disappointing this will be for all our learners, and we are busy working to look for ways of keeping in touch with them, so their progress is disrupted as little as possible.  Please encourage all learners to check our social media pages, and the Council website for any further updates and information.
As our partners, I also realise that this will be a concerning time for you and your staff, and I can assure you that we are working to try and resolve any immediate issues or concerns you may have.  We will stay in contact and update you as soon as we can, please continue to follow the guidance for COVID-19, and check our social media and the Council website for further updates and information.
