Ambitious Plans. Made Together.
Working with partners to make the region healthier, greener, more vibrant and innovative for all.
Real world partnerships
Working with organisations and individuals across South Yorkshire we’ve created the Made Together programme: a major University of Sheffield regeneration initiative with a dedicated team of staff and a clear brief to do four things: make our region healthier, greener, more vibrant and innovative for all.
From Barnsley to Rotherham to Doncaster and back to Sheffield, we’re completing hundreds of projects that will enhance the lives of thousands of people in the region.
