Welcome to Burton Street Foundation

Bulletins

After discussions with Sheffield City Council and other Sheffield care providers in regards to the Coronavirus pandemic and the new national lockdown, we regret to inform you that Burton Street Foundation has taken the decision to suspend building based services until further notice.
 
Our site is Covid secure and we have taken all possible measures to stay open for those who need us. That being said, the uncertainty over the new strain in the UK and the rise in cases has required us to take this decision in the best interests of all staff, clients, volunteers and visitors who use our site.
 
We will still be doing lots of sessions on Zoom and also creating content for our YouTube channel to keep you entertained. The Client Connect service will also continue so expect a call from us regularly to see how you are doing. The activity packs that were popular in the first lockdown will also be made up and delivered to you in the near future.
Until then, please take care and keep safe, we hope to see you soon. 

We support up to 250 clients a week, across a variety of departments to aid in learning and development.

 

We are a multi-purpose site, many businesses call us home, we offer on site workplace training, and host countless conferences and events each year. 

There is always something going on at Burton Street, see what’s on, plan an event or book your place on one our favourite functions.

Lovely music to sooth the soul.

Tuesday 26th January
 

No bake Oreo truffles

Ingredients;

· Oreos

· Cream cheese

· White chocolate or a bag of white choc chips (just enough to make 24 truffles)

· Sprinkles

· Vanilla extract

 

Method;

· Put oreos into a large plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin until broken down into small crumbs

· Put into a large bowl and add cream cheese (it needs to be soft so microwaving this for 15 seconds helps.

· Add a tbsp of vanilla extract and mix until all the mixture comes together. You can do this with a spoon or your hands.

· Once this is done roll into balls, usually you get around 24 truffles for about 15 minutes

· Whilst these are setting melt your chocolate

· Coat the truffles in chocolate and add sprinkles

· Put these in the fridge, they will keep for about a week

This session is designed to be a low-key relaxing session for all and any clients who are interested in joining.  The aim is for us all to experience and learn some techniques which help us relax and feel good at home.

 

We generally start with a brief chat and a song, followed by some gentle but energising warm ups.  We then slow down and spend a longer period of time with our microphones muted, listening to relaxing music and doing some breathing exercises together, and then enjoy a guided Peace Out meditation.  This is an opportunity for all clients to listen to peaceful and relaxing sounds and experience some stillness and calm.

 

We advise preparing for this session simply by having to hand any pillows or blankets you may wish to use during the relaxing second half of the session, as people may wish to lay down for this.  However, everyone is free to enjoy this session in whatever way works for them!

 

The session is intended to offer something for everyone, whether they prefer simply listening to familiar voices and relaxing music, or doing gentle movements alongside this which can help our bodies feel good.
