The Archer Project, Orchard Square’s chosen charity for 2022, is a community-based charity in Sheffield that helps homeless and vulnerable people change their lives for the better. Based less than a mile from Orchard Square, in purpose-built premises at Sheffield Cathedral, the dedicated team helps those who need it most by developing their independence and general well-being to increase their employment chances.
