Burton Street Foundation – a vibrant community hub in Hillsborough

The Burton Street Foundation provides vital services for 300 disabled adults and children in Hillsborough, Sheffield. Set in three Victorian school buildings, the community hub also accommodates over 20 small businesses and charities – including a café, a bar and restaurant, a conference centre, a gym and sports hall and a recording studio – that employ 72 local people. All these facilities are used by the local community and Sheffield businesses.

This generates income for Burton Street to run 30 regular sessions for adults and children with learning difficulties, and many other activities and events for the local community.
