“During a challenging 12 month period our Provider of the Year has done what it always does, providing a beacon of hope in its local community. Where possible its doors have remained open to welcome people in and provide the employment, education and wellbeing support they so desperately need.

“As Opportunity Sheffield, the Council worked with this provider on a series of different projects this year, notably Sheffield’s Working and ESF Pathways. They have proven to be one of our most consistent performers, both in terms of recruiting individuals onto programme and achieving positive outcomes for their clients.

“Our winner ticked over nicely with new Outputs but saw an enormous spike in Results, with a phenomenal 19 specialist health participants securing a job during the quarter.
