Stocksbridge Community Care Group

Stocksbridge Community Care Group (SCCG) is an established voluntary
community organisation working in the Stocksbridge, Wharncliffe Side and Oughtibridge areas.

SCCG works to combat loneliness for older people.

There is a Friendly Visitor Scheme. The scheme provides company for older
people who are lonely and isolated. Our Volunteer Visitors give their time
to befriend older people by visiting them at home for tea and a chat or
possibly taking them out.

Stocksbridge & Upper Don 50+ is affiliated to Sheffield 50+. It is a non political, independent voluntary group democratically run by and for people over 50.

Learn to play Racketball in Stocksbridge

Have you ever thought about learning how to play Racketball? Racketball is the UK’s fastest growing sport and is played on a squash court. In racketball players use a larger ball, which does not need warming up like in squash, and a shorter racket. The fact that the ball is bigger and more bouncy than a squash ball means that rallies last longer.
