Friends' groups work in partnership with us to ensure that our green spaces are well-used and maintained. Sheffield boasts one of the largest numbers of 'Friends Of' groups in the UK in comparison with other major cities.
Please contact us and we will send you a 'Practical Activity Day Application Form'. This needs completing and submitting with a Risk Assessment Form.
We have some limited resources available for Friends' groups who are carrying out approved practical activities in Sheffield's parks, woodlands or other green spaces.
These include personal protective equipment (PPE) for volunteers, and also tools that can be used by groups for practical activities, such as gardening.
Examples of the type of items we have available are:
The provision or loan of equipment and tools is subject to availability and we may restrict the amount of equipment supplied to each group, based on the level of demand. Tools are available for loan only. This is in addition to equipment available from our Ranger Service, which is also sometimes available for groups to loan.
Equipment and tools will only be provided to groups who have our express permission to carry out practical activities.
On Ranger led work days the Ranger Service will supply all the tools and equipment required.
