What we do
SOAR is a community regeneration charity that provides a range of services designed to improve a person’s health, well-being and employability.
Working in partnership with over 20 GP Surgery’s and over 40 Community Partners, our social prescribing service is one of the largest in the city.
Our team consists of Social Prescribing Link Workers, Wellbeing Coaches, Welfare Coaches, Employment Coaches, Development, Volunteering and Centres. Working in partnership with GP Surgeries and Community Partners, we have supported over 10,000 people since 2014.
SOAR was incorporated in March 2004 as a company limited by guarantee and became a charity in November 2005. Since 2006, when the Southey Owlerton Regeneration programme ended, SOAR has moved on to deliver a variety of services that carry on the regeneration process in the North of Sheffield.
