A Neighbourhood Scheme is a group of people aged 50+ in your area who participate in healthy activities. Volunteers help to organise these activities as part of a steering group or committee, with support from a dedicated team at Calderdale Council.
There are Neighbourhood Schemes running in Todmorden, Halifax, Pellon, Sowerby Bridge, Illingworth and Southowram, as well as an Asian women’s group currently based in the Queens Road area of Halifax. These groups run a wide variety of activities in different venues, including Tai Chi and exercise classes, art and craft groups, computing, singing and much more. These groups run independently, with committees organising their own local activities.
