Active Training with Active Rainbow

Wednesday 2nd August 2023

Active Calderdale has recently supported local organisation Active Rainbow, to deliver a series of workshops in the Lower Calder Valley. These workshops were developed to allow volunteers and staff from local community settings to be trained to deliver physical activities for their members. This training has helped to ensure that many community settings that usually involve sitting for long periods, can now be transformed into active sessions.
