About the Trust


We were initially established in 2003 as Sheffield Care Trust and on 01 July 2008 we were authorised to operate as Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust.

As a membership-based organisation our Board of Directors is accountable to the communities that we serve mainly through our Council of Governors, and directly to our members at our Annual Members’ Meeting.

With an annual income of approximately £124.5 million and around 2,400 members of staff, we provide mental health, learning disability, substance misuse, community rehabilitation, and a range of primary care and specialist services to the people of Sheffield. We also provide some of our specialist services to people living outside of Sheffield.
