Some West Yorkshire CANN Organisations
Sheffield Volunteering, as part of the University of Sheffield Students’ Union, encourages and enables University of Sheffield students to engage with local communities. We work closely with local voluntary, charitable and social organisations in Sheffield and South Yorkshire to increase the involvement of student volunteers in the city and region, and strengthen their connection with communities. If you are a local charitable organisation and would like to recruit student volunteers, please get in touch. We can help you to promote regular volunteering opportunities or one-off activities. We also have student-led projects (including sports and educational) who deliver outreach activities in schools and community groups. Get in touch if this is something you would be interested in.

SWAN UK is the only dedicated support network for families of children with undiagnosed genetic conditions. Approximately 6,000 children are born in the UK each year with a syndrome without a name – a genetic condition so rare that it is often impossible to diagnose. Without a diagnosis it can be difficult to access basic information and support. We have information leaflets below which are available to download. We are developing leaflets in further languages and these will also be available to download once they are completed. If you can’t find the answer to your question in the resources below or would like to make an enquiry please email: email@example.com. Our animation called ‘Ellie’s story’ explains what it means to have an undiagnosed genetic condition and how SWAN UK helps. Click the link to find out more: bit.ly/elliesstory We offer 24/7 information and support through our online forums for registered members. If you would like to become a SWAN UK member please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or click here to find out more. Don’t forget to check out our news section and join our mailing list too.

This is sometimes referred to as ‘school refusal’, or emotionally based school avoidance and may be due to unmet Special Educational Needs & Disabilities including physical or mental illness, either suspected or diagnosed, bullying or issues relating to academic pressure, or even the school environment. We provide peer support, using our tried and tested resources and to help parents advocate for the support their children and young people need to be able to learn and achieve. We hope to build up our growing network of peer supporters, who we can train to use our guides for their own family and ultimately to then help other families experiencing attendance difficulties. Empowering parents to be able to effectively work with professionals, should encourage not only earlier intervention, with much better outcomes, but also reduce the risk and impact of unhelpful, and unnecessary attendance prosecutions and social services safeguarding interventions. It is vital that children, young people […]
