The Sheffield Green Spaces Forum


Why do we need a Green Spaces Forum

Green and open spaces groups with in Sheffield face an ever increasing number of challenges both technical and financial by coming together as equals we can share ideas, knowledge, costs and have a powerful voice for the good of the communities they serve.
Uniting these organisations under a green spaces forum umbrella organization will allow a much clearer line of communication throughout the sector in Sheffield, also empowering groups to support each other and to create new partnerships.
  • Examples of how a green spaces forum could benefit both groups and the people of Sheffield include:
  • Reducing service costs
  • Increasing lobbying power
  • Sharing equipment
  • Building cross city relationships
  • Cross group funding bids
  • Sharing Ideas
  • Providing a first point of contact for groups and users.
  • and many more

How do I become a member

Currently membership is only open to  green and open spaces groups (not individuals or companies). There are no fees  for memebrship  at present as teh forum is still in its infancy if you wish you can simply attend a general meeting and ask to be added to our mailing list, and we will keep you uptodate with whats happening.
