How can I get involved?

We welcome all members of the Sheffield community and surrounding area. From signing petitions to joining us at rallies – and everything in between – you can help us stand up to fracking no matter how much (or how little) time you can spare, no matter what skills and experience you have.

Please join us at our next meeting or contact us to get involved.
