Care Package Initiative

The Health & Wellbeing team are reaching out across South Yorkshire with our exciting new ‘Care Package Initiative’ as part of our Fans Fighting Cancer programme. During this time many people in our community may be experiencing feelings of social isolation and frustration due to not being able to attend their normal day to day activities. The team have been reaching out to participants from our programmes to offer support; This could be anything from a chat to sending out one of our Community Foundation care packages. Our care packages are made up of essential items such as hand sanitiser and face masks as well as fun things such as puzzles and books. They even come with a Sheffield United Community Foundation bag and pen!


After recieving the care package, you will gain access to the Fans FC project. This is made up of face to face (when possible) physical activity sessions as well as digital exercise sessions and online social groups.


Please get in touch with us if you or any of your family or friends would like one of our care packages or needs additional support. We will try and help in any way that we can. Please email To see our Care Package Initiative Disclaimer click here.
