Easing the Move for Estranged Students
Donations to the Hallam Fund have helped to make the transition to university easier for estranged students
Taking Care of Mental Health
Through support of The Hallam Fund a new Residential Wellbeing Mentoring programme has been launched which is committed to improving student wellbeing and ultimately reducing the number of students forced to withdraw from university.
Improving the lives of men with prostate cancer
Generous donations from alumni and friends of the University have enabled PhD student, Rosa Greasley, to undertake a pioneering clinical trial - looking into how exercise can have a positive impact on the quality of life, physical function and muscle mass of men with prostate cancer.
Staff conquer half marathon for Hallam Fund
Back in April this year, 35 Sheffield Hallam University staff laced up their running shoes to tackle the gruelling Sheffield Half Marathon to raise money for the Hallam Fund.
Donations help provide safe homes for care leavers
Students who come to Sheffield Hallam University from foster care often don't have a home to return to throughout summer, or a family to call on for financial and emotional support. Therefore, access to a secure and affordable home is particularly important.
Breaking through barriers
The Estranged Student Transition Fund will support first year students during their move from home to University.
Rosa successfully applied for one of Hallam's fully funded Vice-Chancellors PhD Scholarships in 2015 and is now working with Dr Liam Bourke in the Centre for Sports and Exercise Science to improve treatments for prostate cancer. Rosa's survived childhood lymphoma and her experiences motivated her to pursue a research career and help the fight against cancer.
