Our charity

Sheffield Futures supports young people to feel well, be active in their communities, and access the learning and employment opportunities that are right for them.

For nearly 30 years, we’ve been here for young people. As their needs have changed, so have we.

We know that life can be tough and complicated. From our drop in wellbeing café to intensive counselling; from our homework club to one-to-one employment assistance, we champion the people behind the statistics. We empower each young person to build a positive future for themselves by providing youth-led, holistic and individualised support.

Star House, our city centre base, is a welcoming hub for young people to meet us and the organisations based with us. Beyond Star House, we work in communities across Sheffield and collaborate with voluntary and statutory professionals to make sure that young people get the best possible support.
