NSPCC Sheffield Service Centre

Letting the future in

This service is for children aged 4 to 17 years old who have experienced sexual abuse, which has been investigated by the police or social care. It is important that the child has a safe parent or carer who can attend sessions with them and who is emotionally able to support them throughout the work. We undertake an assessment to assess whether now is the right time for therapeutic intervention. We offer child sessions, joint sessions and parenting support. The team consists of therapists and social workers. The sessions are child-led and we use a range of activities such as play, art, music and talking therapies. Anyone can refer in to this service; including parents and professionals – please contact us on 0114 228 9200 for a referral form.

Letting the future in – learning disability

This service is for children aged 4 to 19 years old, who have a mild to moderate learning disability, and have either disclosed they have been sexually abused or the network around the child strongly suspect that sexual abuse has occurred. Anyone can refer in to this service; including parents and professionals – please contact us on 0114 228 9200 for a referral form.

Protect and respect

This service aims to provide socio-educative work to children and young people who have been identified as potentially having a raised vulnerability to child sexual exploitation. This is delivered in schools via a 6 week groupwork programme; however, we also work on a 1:1 basis if group members are identified as requiring additional support, and this includes offering parenting support. We work closely with local partners across Sheffield, such as the Sexual Exploitation Service. Schools and education provisions can refer directly to the NSPCC to access this free in-school service by calling us on 0114 228 9200.

Life story work

The life story work project aims to develop, deliver and evaluate a defined model of life story work for looked after children, aged between 8 to 17 years old. The service aims to help looked after children develop a coherent sense of their story through the provision of a clear narrative about their past, to support them to live more comfortably in the present and to help them plan for the future. The intervention aims to improve looked after children’s emotional wellbeing, and resilience. Referrals to this service are via Sheffield City Council’s Children Looked After team and Independent Reviewing Officers.

Seeking Solutions

Seeking Solutions offers children and young people help and support to deal with problems that are affecting their life, happiness or wellbeing. The service is led by the young person, working alongside their support network, where possible, to improve their confidence, skills and strengths, so they are better prepared to cope with any future problems.

In Ctrl

In Ctrl is a social-educative programme adapted to be delivered virtually in 1:1 sessions with children aged 9 to 13 years old. The aim of the work is to help build children’s digital resilience while increasing parental knowledge and confidence to support and protect their children. Up to 4 sessions are offered, including support work with parents or carers to explore safe and unsafe online behaviour.
