Community 1st Sheffield was established in October 2005 under the government’s Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) programme as a public private partnership with an original aim to develop and maintain community-based primary health, social care and community premises in Sheffield.

While our initial focus was on developing facilities to support improved primary care provision, the move towards greater co-location and integration of health, social care and community services has allowed the LIFT partnership to thrive and develop exciting community facilities which are home to a range of services and which offer Sheffield’s local communities an excellent opportunity to benefit from the real investment being made towards a healthier future.

Community 1st Sheffield Limited is a private company limited by shares, the majority of which (60%) are owned by the private sector.

The company shareholders are:

  • Community Health Partnerships (40%)
  • The private sector – Equity Solutions & Partners (60%)
