About Sheffield City Council

Welcome to Sheffield – a vibrant and resilient city with big ambitions.

The city has been moving rapidly in the right direction over the last few years and is now ready to reach its potential as one of England’s great cities. It wants to be the best to be a city for everyone in Sheffield – a great place to live, learn, work and enjoy.

Historically known for its steel manufacturing; that steely determination runs through the city, from the diverse communities proud to call it home, to its strong and effective partnerships and through the many enterprising and dynamic companies who have made their base in a city that wants to grow in a way that benefits everyone. It is a city driven by its values of fairness and hard work, a place modestly proud of its achievements and how it has transformed itself, but also a city that knows that its best days are in front of it.

One of the largest cities in England, Sheffield is developing itself as an advanced manufacturing and technology economy. A city that has the ingenuity to tackle climate change; seeing social justice and the environmental sustainability of its economy, places, communities and way of life as fundamental to its present and future; for doing things differently high on its agenda.

High on this agenda is a new devolution deal working its way through Parliament bringing new powers and funding to support the local economy; tackling the inequalities faced by its most vulnerable residents; and now the City’s recovery and renewal following the COVID-19 crisis.

Sheffield City Council is primed for the future with solid foundations, services and people and the right partnerships in place.
