Enterprise

Often the first step to getting better is making new connections, and that can be as simple as going online. Once you’re ready, there are a variety of creative and supportive activities running in Sheffield. And at some point, you might want to get enterprising, which is where the list below comes in - from learning online, to influencing care as a patient, and from volunteering to careers. We also try to facilitate mentoring, by helping people who are looking to improve skills link up with people who have them.
