About STN 


Sheffield Talking News (S.T.N.) is a small registered charity (No 1001700)  which produces each week over 400 USB Memory Sticks of local news for anyone who is blind, visually impaired or unable to read a newspaper through disability. Arrangements with both the Sheffield Star and Telegraph and the Yorkshire Post allow us to include the content of their publications without infringement of copyright - we are most grateful for this concession. A bi monthly magazine is also produced throughout the year. There is no charge for the service which is  delivered by Royal Mail free of charge.
STN also produces audio tapes and CDs for other local organisations including the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind (SRSB) newsletter; South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau (SYFAB) Funding News; Sheffield Homes In Touch magazines; Sheffield Care Trust; Sheffield City Council (various departments). Income from this work helps subsidise other costs and along with a wide number of individual donations allows STN to continue to provide its service at no cost to its listeners.
