The brand-new website This is Sheffield, which promotes independent companies across the city, has created a guide to raise awareness of businesses who are continuing to operate throughout the Covid-19 crisis.

This Is Sheffield is an online platform where users can make use of the ‘guide to the area’ tool to locate local, independent pubs, bars, restaurants, cafes, beauticians and other retailers across Kelham, Abbeydale, Castlegate, Ecclesall and surrounding areas.

To support Sheffield based independents right now, This Is Sheffield has created a directory of businesses who are continuing to operate whether this may be as takeaways, deliveries or even reduced hours.

The guide enables the local community to come together, support local businesses during this period of uncertainty and ensure that they can keep operating.

This Is Sheffield is also encouraging local residents to share the news of the Covid-19 directory across their social media channels to raise further awareness across their suburbs.
