One of the most extensive and attentive outreach services in Sheffield.
We actively seek to support our clients to discover a whole range of different places, develop new skills, and find new interests. We know that disability doesn’t mean you don’t have a sense of adventure! By working to those goals we carefully build a trained staff team around each individual, to ensure that each day and each trip reflects exactly what that client wants.
Some of the places we have supported clients to visit recently have been:
- Peak District
- Cadbury’s World
- Train Trips
- Royal Armouries
- Local Parks and Festivals
We work with clients on a range of different ability levels, as well as individuals with challenging behaviour and dementia.
About Burton Street Disability Services
The Burton Street Foundation provides day services in Sheffield for adults and children with learning disabilities. We have a fully equipped and accessible site in Hillsborough, Sheffield.
Our ethos is to embrace the things people can do, rather than focusing on what they can’t. All sessions are designed to help develop self-esteem, self-confidence and self-awareness. We explore new sensory activities, encourage discussion and expression of feelings and thoughts, and enable people to reach their own personal goals.
Our staff are among the most experienced, innovative and professional support workers in the industry. Every member of our team receives regular, high quality training, and we have a culture of constant progression and professional development. We work hard to ensure everyone at Burton Street is motivated and able to provide the highest quality disability services.
Our organisation is run on a not-for-profit basis, and we have been established this way for 20 years. Around 200 clients from across Sheffield attend Burton Street on a weekly basis.
