High proportion of young people


Lowfield Park underwent a significant regeneration in 2012, transforming it from an unsafe, low-quality and under-utilised green space that was left after a slum clearance into a multifunctional sport, play and community facility.

As part of this project the U-Mix Centre was build were activities take place like dance, music, yoga, and various employability-related skills sessions. This community centre is run under contract from the Sheffield City Council by FURD (Football Unites Racism Divides). This is a local social enterprise that works closely with the local charity Sheffield Futures in helping young people find education, employment and training to achieve a brighter future.
