Foundations move

Foundations move

A project designed to help people from across the city of Sheffield with mental health issues has relocated to Hillsborough, enabling it to comfortably handle more referrals.

Run by Adullam Homes Housing Association and called Adullam Foundations, the service works with people either living alone or with their families. It helps them build self-confidence, learn life skills, and therefore remain independent within their own homes and communities.

Its aims are to help prevent people from needing adult social care, stop people with ill health from getting worse and avoid people who have needed care in the past from needing it again.

The new accommodation, within the Burton Street Foundation, has much better group facilities for service users, volunteers and peer mentors than the precious office space in Knowle House on Norfolk Road. It also boasts an onsite café, plenty of free car parking, public transport nearby, and disability access.

Adullam’s base within the building consists of service user space on the ground floor and staff offices on the first floor, allowing privacy and confidentiality. Service users and staff were consulted on the relocation and voted in favour of it. 

More than 100 people are currently supported by Adullam Foundations and the move will allow for even more to take advantage of the help it offers.

Referrals are accepted from a broad range of services, with priority given to Sheffield Health and Social Care Trust, and in particular Single Point of Access (SPA), Recovery Services, and Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT). Self-referrals are also accepted.
