Championing 'Making Sheffield Fairer'

The best way to help make Sheffield Fairer is to facilitate change by example, showing people that through the power of small actions, we really can build a fairer and better city.
To move Sheffield towards being a fairer city, we want ‘Champions’ - people who will commit to doing a specific action or are already doing great work to help and support others.
We are connecting with and searching for projects, initiatives and organisations who are working to Make Sheffield Fairer, so that we can give our Champions one off 'Task' and more regular 'Time' based opportunities that they can get involved with.
We also want to hear from all the people already making a difference, sign them up as Champions, showcase what they're doing and start finding ways that we can help them.
Anyone who lives, works, studies or does business in Sheffield can become a Fairness Champion, just click here.

Many thanks for your ongoing support and efforts,

Jonny, the OPUS and Our Fair City Teams
