Sheffield Pathways is Closing

It is with regret we are announcing the closure of Sheffield Pathways. Due to changes in the structure of the Primary Care Network in Sheffield, funding for the project will not continue.

Since 2021 Sheffield Pathways has worked with GP surgeries in the city to provide accessible and non-judgmental support for people facing social crisis and barriers to support. This has included support around mental health, benefits, housing, access to food banks, substance use, domestic abuse, health, and wellness, as well as referrals to other organisations.

We would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to Devonshire Green Medical Centre, Upperthorpe Medical Centre, Harold Street Medical Centre, Porter Brook Medical Centre, Hannover Medical Centre, Rachel Frost, Joanne Jenkins, Julie Wagland, Fozia Din and the residents of Sheffield.

Since 2021:

  • 262 individuals have received support through 1:1 appointments
  • Delivered 479 sessions with 640 different interventions
  • 351 onward referrals to other services for more long-term and specific support

“Due to my mental health I struggle to understand, but felt with Pathways I was understood and listened to”

Sheffield Pathways is a short-term crisis support, aiming to link people into the right agencies across the city for more long-term support where needed. The project’s final day of delivery will be 22nd March 2024.
