News: Invest in our Manufacturing Future


Sheffield City Council is calling on the Government to step up support for South Yorkshire manufacturing in a bid to save what is ultimately the heart of the UK's industry.

The aim is to work with South Yorkshire industries and neighbouring authorities to launch a campaign to lobby Government for more support.

A petition has been established at Number 10 and people are urged to show Government how much this means to South Yorkshire.

Sheffield Council are campaigning on the following:

• The Government should work and invest with the manufacturing industry to ensure that the industries such as steel making can be ready when the economy improves.

• We want more Government-backed training and apprenticeships in the skills that industry needs to keep it ahead of other nations

• We want the Government to do more, including getting help on research and development to prevent manufacturing jobs from going abroad

• We need a simplified research and development tax system that provides genuine incentives for manufacturing companies looking to grow and become more competitive.
