Councillor Jane Bird, Lord Mayor of Sheffield, visited NOMAD tenancy support schemes in Burngreave.
NOMAD's Tenancy Support Schemes provide help and support to single people or families who need help with moving into their new home. They also support people who already have a home but who need help to maintain their tenancy or access services within the community. The schemes are open to all tenants - housing association, private or council - and also homeowners.
The support workers can help with things like moving into a new property, making benefit claims, budgeting, accessing agencies and organisations, finding education and employment. The rising cost of utilities and food makes budgeting on low incomes more difficult. Support usually includes home visits, telephone contact and help with attending appointments.
The Lord Mayor was shown around the building by Project Managers, Lynne Allen and Gemma Mathieson and told about the history of the project. Over a cup of tea and biscuits, she talked to staff about their employment and was particularly interested in talking to a current employee who started work as a volunteer.
NOMAD has a Volunteers Project based at West Street. Anybody wanting to get involved in volunteering should call 0114 275 5441 for more information.
