Thank you to our 2020 Associate Partners

Despite the current pandemic we are delighted to announce our Associate Partners for the 2020 Off the Shelf Festival of Words who value the cultural vibrancy the festival brings to Sheffield.

Sheffield Property Association


Established in 2017, the S-PA is an independent association of over 80 businesses in the city of Sheffield, who along with a wide range of professional organisations, are helping create and support the built environment in Sheffield and further afield.

The S-PA works closely with the Council and other stakeholders to promote the city and to make the case for investment in Sheffield. Built on the three pillars of research, advocacy and networking, the S-PA has worked to enhance Sheffield’s profile, creating networks which bring together the property community to benefit the city.

“Off the Shelf is a key part of the cultural offering that Sheffield provides, and the S-PA is delighted to be a part of it”

Sheffield Hallam University Institute for Policy Studies  


The Sheffield Institute for Policy Studies (SIPS) is a research institute based at Sheffield Hallam University which highlights the quality and breadth of the University’s policy related research. The Institute was launched in 2016 with an inaugural lecture from Polly Toynbee and runs regular events for policy makers and members of the public. Speakers in the past have included member of the House of Lords, Lord Kerslake and business owner and activist Gina Miller.

The Institute is a space for innovative, inter-disciplinary working and capacity building that extends its reach beyond the University to engage with a dynamic and expanding group of stakeholders. 

SIPS is also concerned with encouraging multi-disciplinary policy studies research across Sheffield Hallam University with attention focusing on key cross cutting issues such as resilience, austerity, migration, radicalisation, devolution, public sector transformation, and young people.
