Staff team back in Burngreave!
From April 1st, everyone working
for Burngreave New Deal for Communities will be employed directly
by the company, rather than by Sheffield City Council.
This transfer of responsibility
follows a lot of hard work by the New Deal personnel and development
sub-committee, chaired by Mr Iqbal.
“It is great to see the
staff back at the heart of Burngreave, employed directly by
BNDfC.” said Mr Iqbal.
On target for delivery
BNDfC’s Year 4 Delivery
Plan has been agreed by the Partnership Board and is now with
Government Office for final approval.
The final Plan incorporated
many suggestions from the community, following widespread
consultation through a public meeting, activities at the Information
Shop on Spital Hill and door to door delivery to every household
of a summary of the Plan.
New Deal expects to spend almost
£7 million over the next year bringing improvements
to the area.
£1 million for youth
A major project involving a
partnership between BNDfC and the Youth Service has now been
approved for development, taking on board young people’s
views gathered through the ‘Listen to Us’ project.
Around £1 million has
been earmarked over the next five years for a number of initiatives
for young people, including year round youth provision, more
youth workers, closer working with agencies already involved
in youth provision, and creating more opportunities for young
people to have their say on what happens in Burngreave.
