SAGE Sheffield, which has been providing services to adults experiencing mental health problems since 2006, will be radically reducing its services after Christmas 2019.

The award winning charity runs horticultural therapy groups on Grimesthorpe Allotments, alongside creative activities including the Singing Through the Seasons group.

SAGE was set up by former Pitsmoor GP Dr Will Carlile “to reach the patients that the NHS can’t reach”.

The end of funding from The National Lottery’s Reaching Communities Fund means that from January 2020 SAGE will be changing their service model and reducing the number of people they can support.

Chair of Trustees, Richard Dolman said:

“We are working hard to enable SAGE to continue our track record for delivering a high-quality service, whilst also maintaining the potential for future expansion where funding allows”.
