See what’s been happening at the Cathedral Archer Project.
Will you join us on Saturday 15th October and Walk In My Shoes?
The event starts at 11am and together we will walk 5 miles through Endcliffe Park. Everybody is welcome!
We believe that in a community people look after each other. Together, we will walk to ensure less people face homelessness alone.

Last week the photography group, with their tutor Mark took a trip to Mam Tor in the Peak District.
Despite the weather being a little windy the sun was shining and the group made it to the top and saw amazing views of the Peaks.
Our weekly photography group takes regular trips round Sheffield city centre and local parks to capture different sides to Sheffield. Some of the groups work has featured in exhibitions such as the Street View Project.
Activities like these build skills and confidence but are also fun and social!
We did it!
Tim, our CEO, Jade and Ruby from the marketing team and 10 of our fantastic supporters ran the Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday.
It was tough for TeamCAP and the hills were relentless but the sun was shining and the support was amazing so got our team through!
Tim was especially pleased as he managed to run the 13.1 miles in an impressive 2 hours and 11 minutes.
Thank you to everyone who ran, sponsored or supported our team, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Can you help us?
Lynne, one of our long-standing volunteers who has been giving up her time and helping at the project for over 8 years is in need of a wheelchair. She struggles to walk but wants to continue to help as it is a great opportunity for her to get out of the house and make a difference in her local community.
Do you know someone who could help us and donate a wheelchair for Lynne to improve her quality of life?
Please get in touch with Jade on 0114 321 2318 if you can help.
A regular donation of £5 can be the start to help someone out of homelessness. £5 could pay for breakfast for someone and then from there they have access to all the other services we provide from medical care, clothing, showers and time with our project workers.
We asked some of our current regular givers why they give to us regularly and here is why:
'Every day I walk passed people asking for money by the train station, near the winter gardens and so on. I want to do something more constructive than just giving them loose change to spend who knows how, so looked for a local charity who worked with homeless people'
'I have a small but lovely bungalow and I give in appreciation of this. Also I think everyone has a right to a home of their own, regular giving helps Archer Project to plan their future budget'
'It’s easy to forget to donate and so doing it by direct debit makes sure I maintain my support for the project'
If you could help us in a small way by donating on a regular basis, you can make sure we can plan for the future and be there for whoever needs us, for as long as it takes.
