About SAF

We are a community group set up in response to the threats posed by unconventional gas and oil extraction, particularly hydraulic fracturing (fracking).

We are non-political and not-for-profit. We welcome all members of the Sheffield community and surrounding area.

Our mission is to protect our environment, health and livelihoods. We join numerous other local groups across the UK in calling for a moratorium on fracking until regulations and guarantees are given to ensure that there will be no negative effects on our environment, livelihoods or health.

We call on the government to legislate to ensure that all companies involved in the business of unconventional gas extraction are required to carry out full environmental impact assessments prior to any exploratory drilling taking place.

Sheffield Against Fracking only supports non-violent, legal, peaceful protest.

If you are concerned about any of the potential risks of fracking, please contact us or join us at our next meeting.
