Target Groups


We held six events across Calderdale targeting approximately 800 people, these were poorly attended by a total of 15. However, we acted on some of the suggestions by those people for example: easier access to short breaks - we are developing a self-referral form, activities that were not entirely sport based - we have a gardening group, links with Artworks and Jumping Clay, more family activities so we set up a series of family fun swims which have been well received.

Actions Taken

Further consultation events to take place by the end of July.
