New stretch target

We will be able to support more individuals to get online and be digitally included


Learn for Life Enterprise is a community hub based in the culturally and ethnically diverse area of Sharrow. We look after people from all over Sheffield providing training, support, stability and advice in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment. 

We support vulnerable and hard-to-reach members of the community, promoting
and maintaining cohesion and integration.

The Covid-19 epidemic and data poverty has greatly affected our service users, who were already suffering from isolation and post traumatic stress disorder. We are currently providing a remote service to keep our users and volunteers safe. For the foreseeable future, this is taking place online, with English classes and one to one support. However, to participate, people need to be able to access the internet.

For this reason, we are raising funds to help combat digital poverty and to purchase internet data for asylum seekers and refugees, so they can continue learning English and stay connected with friends, family and essential services online.
