The Big City Conversation header

We’ve launched The Big City Conversation across Sheffield.  It’s a chance for you to get involved and have a say on the things that matter to you.  We want to hear from as many people as possible, of all ages and backgrounds, from every part of Sheffield, about the issues that affect you, your communities and your city. 

If you want to get involved, please come along to one of our events and chat with us, or complete our survey below.  The survey takes just a few minutes and asks you about how you want to tell us (and partners who work with us) about the things you need, the things that affect you, and how you feel you can influence decisions around these issues.

We’ve already held events in the Moor Market, the Town Hall, the Christmas Market, the Market Place at Crystal Peaks and Sainsbury's on Archer Road.  At these events, our councillors, Cabinet Members and employees saw hundreds of people and got some great feedback on things about Sheffield.  We've got some more events planned, so if you're nearby, please come and chat with us for a couple of minutes about what matters to you...

January events:

  • 16 January 2020, Woodhouse Forum, Woodhouse Library, Skelton Lane, S13 7LY, 7pm - 9pm

We've also put out some feedback boxes around the city so you can post anything you'd like to tell us in one of those.  You can find the feedback boxes in libraries,  Howden House, Housing First Points, Sheffield MINDHeeley City Farm, Shipshape, Reach, the Carers centre, Tinsley Forum, Arbourthorne centre, Family centres (including Highfield, Darnall, Early Days at Southey,  First Start at Firth Park, Valley park,  Primrose at Walkley, and Shortbrook), Centre in the Park at Norfolk Park, Star House, Stannington Community Centre, Grenoside Community Centre, Stocksbridge Town Council, Stocksbridge Leisure Centre, Joseph Stone Centre and Com.unity in  Westfield.  

If you can't get to an event or post into a feedback box, then you can complete our online survey below if you want to give us some feedback on the things you love about our city and the things you don’t, and importantly what we can do to make it better for you.
