Lunch Clubs Fund

We offer grants on a year by year basis to support the activities of lunch clubs across the city.  The majority of these are clubs run by and for older people.

If you are interested in joining a lunch club you can find out more about the different club, where they are, when they meet and what they charge, from our Lunch Clubs Directory.  There is also information about how to join a lunch club.

We are currently funding around 70 different lunch clubs.  For a list of lunch clubs awarded grants in 2013-14, please see the downloadable document.

To find out about the clubs supported in Sheffield in the past and their activities and impact take a look at our Lunch Clubs Fund Annual Report 2012-13


Volunteering opportunities

The majority of lunch clubs are run by volunteers and there are lots of opportunities to get involved. 

Typically, volunteers help with:

  • Cooking and serving meals
  • Bookkeeping and finances
  • Organising and general administration
  • Transporting members
  • Activities and fundraising

If you enjoy the company of older people and are looking for a useful way to spend a few hours a week, why not volunteer to help at a lunch club?  Contact Voluntary Action Sheffield on 0114 253 6650 for details.

If you want to contact us, please email lunchclubs@sheffield.gov.uk or telephone 0114 273 4631.
