We are happy to announce a new charitable partnership with Sheffield Flourish. Building on our ‘Little Leg Up” scheme to offer something transformational. We started Little Leg Up to offer free support for anyone that wanted, no obligation free time with our team. Sadly the uptake for this was fairly small, so we went looking for a better way to deploy our skills.
For the next 12 months at least we will be working alongside Sheffield Flourish, they are a driven team aiming to support people to use their skills, ideas and talent to build the lives they want. This collaboration is designed to promote awareness of Sheffield Flourish’s services and community enterprises, whilst allowing Little Mesters to contribute to charity beyond a simple donation.
What is Sheffield Flourish?
Robyn Fletcher, Deputy Managing Director at Sheffield Flourish, has been working closely with us since the inception of our partnership.
She adds: “The beautiful thing about our partnership with Little Mesters, is that from day one they showed us the power of social media - a tweet on our end seeking some bespoke social media training led to Little Mesters appearing in our inbox offering to donate their skills and time. This will make a huge difference to our small team and charity!”
A Sheffield mental health charity rooted in our community and providing many services:
- Sharing mental health stories
- Running the Sheffield Mental Health Guide
- My Toolkit Website
- Sheffield Suicide Support
- Supporting six community enterprises
- Flourish League, inclusive football league across the region
Why Sheffield Flourish?
We were considering how our team could use their skills and expertise to help raise the profile of a worthy cause free of charge, at the same time Sheffield Flourish asked for support.
He says: “This will hopefully lead to more opportunities for Flourish, more donations, more partnerships. Most importantly it will help raise awareness of the amazing services they offer.”
The partnership between Little Mesters and Sheffield Flourish has already started, launching in April 2022 after completing a full audit and strategy. Little Mesters are also involved with monthly content plans, design work, training and we are also on their digital sub group.
