Found a very brief piece on the closure of this Sheffield agency here:
"Manor Rights and Advice Service will be shutting on June 28 due to the lack of funding for their service for the Manor community. The committee have taken interest from different like minded organisations and charities from within the Manor area, as they are planning to gift aid the building as well as their assets.
For any information about the service, contact Alex Davies, Manor Rights & Advice Service, C/O Alison Business Centre, 39/40 Alison Crescent, Manor, SHEFFIELD, S2 1AS"
We regret to inform you that due to lack of funding we, the management committee of Manor Right & Advice Service, have had to make the tough decision of closing the advice service as of 28th June 2012.
Up until the closure date of 28th June 2012 we will still be operating but on a reduced basis. We will be offering basic advice and signposting the new cases on to another service provider.
We have been told by Sheffield City Council that an advice service will be provided in the area by another provider from 1st July 2012 but at present we are not sure in what form or where this will be.
If you need to access advice please contact central advice line, Advice Sheffield OR visit your nearest advice shop which is Castle Advice OR visit the self help website. All details are listed below.

May we take this opportunity to express that the committee and staff have worked extremely hard to try and keep the service open and will do our best to help you in the interim period of the new provider being allocated to the area. With this in mind we understand that clients/users may feel frustrated that they may not able to access our service as before but we need to stress that our staff are doing their utmost to offer the best service we can provide under these circumstances
Both staff and the committee would like to thank you for all your support over the last 30 years.
