Sheffield Churches Council For Community Care
Who we are
Sheffield Churches Council for Community Care (SCCCC) was established in 1966.
All our services have grown out of the desire to support older people so that they are able to maintain a reasonable quality of life for as long as possible.
SCCCC thrives on its strong links with the community and enjoys a unique position in the city, working in partnership with the statutory and voluntary sector. We remain on the front line, listening and responding practically to what people tell us they need.
Our schemes include:
The Good Neighbour Scheme: This scheme aims to combat loneliness and isolation and finds a “friendly visitor”, a volunteer who will call for a chat on a regular basis. Volunteers help the scheme both as visitors and by offering to help in an emergency. This can mean shopping for someone who suddenly can’t get to the shops or perhaps sitting with someone who is housebound whilst their husband or wife goes to an urgent hospital appointment.
The Hospital AfterCare Scheme: Our services continue to be well regarded by everyone who uses them. SCCCC Hospital After Care Scheme serves the Sheffield Hospitals and deals with over 250 cases every month. Staff can be called on to carry out a wide range of tasks such as: help with transport home; shopping for a patient who is being discharged; fitting a temporary key safe to enable carers to access the patient's home; collecting a patient’s belongings from home and delivering them to hospital or delivering small pieces of equipment to the patients’ homes.
