After suffering two strokes in her early 40s, Joanne felt isolated and struggled to find somewhere to fit her needs—until she ‘bit the bullet’ and gave Clifford House a go.
It’s been one year since Clifford House opened its doors to the public. In that time we’ve hosted dozens of different activities and welcomed hundreds of people through our doors.
This week we celebrated our anniversary with cake and cocktails at Clifford House, and were pleased to see so many of our friends join us — clients, volunteers, activity leaders and staff.
Take a look at some of our photos below…
On Wednesday 12 September, it will have been one year since our first ever Welcome Day at Clifford House.
We're inviting all of our clients along with their families to join us for our anniversary celebrations and share their fondest memories of the past year over cake and cocktails.
This event must be booked and spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so please reserve your spot through the button below.
Our What's On guide for September-October 2018 is now available .
We are pleased to announce that Dead Earnest Theatre will be presenting their play 'Space for Sharing' at Clifford House on Tuesday 5 June, 5pm-7pm.
Gupshup roughly translates to 'chit chat' in Pakistani. Led by Naureen Khan, our Community Engagement Worker at St Luke's, our Gupshup Club is an opportunity for our clients from a South Asian background - many of whom do not speak English as their first language - to meet, make friends and take part in our creative activities.
Coffee and Company is simply a place for you to talk about whatever you want. Perhaps you needing advice on coping with grief, or want to discuss how an illness has affected you or your loved ones - or perhaps you just need to have a good vent! This is a space for you, entirely free of cost.
Our aim is to provide a support network where every single person feels entirely comfortable to chat about anything and everything, no matter how serious or trivial you think it is. That's why we've limited our staff presence to just one volunteer, giving room for the rest of the group to be made up of those on similar journeys, with similar experiences - ears that listen without judgement, with tried and tested advice. There's no need to book, just turn up and drop in!
Oh, we nearly forgot to mention the amazing coffee, huge selection of teas, and wonderful cakes to help you on your way. Have a slice of lemon drizzle, make new friends, and say what you want to say; we hope to see you next Wednesday!
For more information, call us on 0114 235 7650 (10am-4pm Tuesday to Thursday), or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clifford House is open to anyone in Sheffield affected by an illness with no cure.
Taking part in crafts is a great way to help you take your mind off things, get chatting to new friends, and explore your creative side.
