New Volunteer Foundation Course starting in Doncaster on 3rd May 2017
We are really pleased to share with you a short video that Little Sheffield made at a recent visit to our Ecclesfield Under 1’s group. We would like to thank our group volunteer Zoe for making this group a huge success and for being so welcoming and lovely.

NEW HOME FOR HOME-START!
We are very excited to announce that we are moving to our new Family Hub in Sheffield this weekend!
Thank you to everyone who came along to the AGM on Monday 28th November, it was lovely to see so many of our volunteers and supporters.
Thank you too to Greg Fell, Public Health for his inspiring presentation. If you were unable to make it a copy of the presentation here: homestart-gf and a look back at Home-Start South Yorkshire over the last year here: home-start-south-yorkshire-2016-agm
The Stanage Stumble will be back in 2017 on Sunday 7th May, this is a challenging 12, 17 or 25 mile route with 10 hour time limit via the beautiful Limb Valley, Fox House, Stanage Edge returning over Redmires Moor back to Limb Valley and finish. (The route has been revised for this year only). Runners welcome on all routes and well behaved dogs on leads permitted.

Over the weekend, 11 intrepid cyclists rode over 150 miles each from Whitehaven, Cumbria to Tynemouth, Newcastle to raise money for Sheffield’s and Rotherham’s leading family support charity, Home-Start.
This year Home-Start Sheffield have been chosen as one of the local charities that will benefit from the spectacular Music in the Gardens event held in the city’s Botanical Gardens from 2nd to 5th July.
We will be there for the final night, 5th July with the Unite Union brass band and the Sheffield Philharmonic orchestra and of course the last night fireworks!
