Burngreave has had a 12-strong Wardens Team for five years, but their New Deal funding ends in March and Sheffield Homes, who employ the team, cannot confirm how many jobs will be lost.
Sheffield Homes announced plans for up to 200 job cuts late last year and negotiations with the Unions are ongoing. News on the outcome is due in February but our Wardens team is unlikely to escape the cuts. Their work to support schemes like the walking bus, local youth clubs and helping residents feel safe is likely to be affected and, with it, the positive relationships they've developed with the community.
