Easy Street – CATS publicity

In South Sheffield just of Chesterfield Road we have a youth theatre company called Easy Street.  The young people that attend this company are aged between 6 and 21years. Easy street is a very vibrant, and positive place for young people who are interested in performing arts.  The company is run by a group of 8 volunteers including young people and there parents.These volunteers work extremely hard to ensure that the young people can put on at least 4 performances a year.  Which means allot of fundraising and hard work backstage too from our volunteers.


In July 2013 the 11-21 yr. old members will be performing “CATS” the musical at the

Montgomery Theater , Surry STreet

                10th -13th  July


Tickets cost £12 adults and Concession £10 (there is also a discount for group booking of 20 = £9.00 per ticket)


I think its the purrrrfect opportunity to  support for some of the city’s creative and talented young people, 

 invite your friends,family or community groups to see the show and support a local community organisation.

The Consultation

The Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Sheffield is a plan to ensure the services in Sheffield meet the health and wellbeing needs of Sheffield people.

In summer 2012 we carried out an initial consultation on our Strategy, and, after changing some elements of the Strategy following on from the consultation, it was approved by Sheffield’s Clinical Commissioning Group and Cabinet. In March we held a series of events around the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) which focused on the outcomes in the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The information from the JSNA and the previous consultation has been used to define further areas that the Health and Wellbeing Board would like to talk to people about.

Tell Us What You Think

From now until 21st June 2013 we will be consulting widely with the public, professionals and stakeholder organisations on the next stage of the strategy’s development. We’d like to hear from you about:

  • How the changes to welfare benefits are affecting you, and what would help.
  • What would help you to have better access to healthcare.
  • What would help you or someone you know to stay well and/or live independently at home.
  • How you or your children could have a healthier lifestyle.
  • What would help you to stay happy and well.

You can tell us what you think by completing our online questionnaire, or if you prefer, you can download a copy of the questionnaire and send it to us by email or post (full details are on the questionnaire).

More information, and the questionnaire are available on our consultation web pages.

If you belong to a group or organisation and would like to hold a discussion or focus group with your members to make a collective response, I attach some guidance on how to go about this which you may find useful. Please contact us if you’d like any more information or support to respond to this consultation.
