*****Help the Homeless at Christmas – StopGap Sheffield*****

StopGap (registered Charity number 1146601), started in 2010 in response to the need for emergency accommodation for homeless people in Sheffield during the coldest months of the year.

We pay for the bed and breakfast accommodation for rough sleepers and those at risk of rough sleeping. This keeps costs to a minimum. In the last year, we provided 599 bed nights of accommodation to 318 homeless and vulnerable people, which is an average of just under 2 nights per individual.

Local agencies working with homeless and vulnerable people contact us to arrange accommodation.  In general, we give people 2-3 nights, so that referral agencies have time to work with them to address longer term housing needs.

Our partner agencies, among others, include Framework, the Cathedral Archer Project, St Wilfrid’s Centre, the Salvation Army, HARC, and ASSIST Sheffield. To make a donation visit the website http://www.stopgapsheffield.org/

Green Tips – keeping your home warm, part 1 – switch supplier or check your supplier’s tariff

At this time of year, it is important to keep your home warm but this can be very expensive.  Many people could save money by switching to a different supplier, or just contacting your current supplier and asking them to switch you away from the standard tariff which is often the most expensive.  Heeley City Farm Energy Centre provide help and advice to anyone needing help to make the switch - sharon.syec@heeleyfarm.org.uk, 0114 303 9981
