‘People Keeping Well' is sometimes known as Social Prescribing. It's all about connecting the community to a range of local services to improve general health and wellbeing. In Sheffield, Social Prescribing is delivered through our 'People Keeping Well' network of community organisations which are funded through Sheffield City Council and Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group.

Each partnership is led by a local voluntary sector organisation which works with a wide range of people who live or work in that community. Each partnership is different, depending on local needs, but might include other voluntary groups, libraries, local forums, GPs, tenants and residents associations, faith groups, food banks, local Councillors and neighbourhood Police Officers.

Each PKW partner delivers services created specifically for people living with dementia. There is a link below to download a PDF document that contains a list of all of the People Keeping Well Service Providers and the Dementia Support Activities that they offer.

Below that, we have listed all of the PKW Partner organisations from across Sheffield separately, alongside the areas in Sheffield that they provide services for. You can click on the link to each PKW partner to find their contact details and website link. You may wish to refer people to these services. You can find all of the PKW organisations and all of their services on the PKW Council website by clicking here. This link also contains a map that enables you to enter the post code of a service user in order to find their nearest PKW organisation, which can be very helpful when looking for suitable locations and services to refer people to in their community.

You can find a full list of services provided for people living with dementia across Sheffield by viewing our dementia services page.
