Welcome to Active Calderdale

Our vision is to be the most active borough in the north by 2024

Be Active. Stay Strong. Protect Our NHS.

Getting your heart rate up for more than 30 minutes per week can have huge impacts on your physical & mental health, your individual development, your community & the environment too.

Keeping active during Lockdown

During the lockdown, we think it's important to celebrate the things that you CAN do - and being active is the perfect example!

There are plenty of ways to stay active within the guidance, read our FREE ideas and resources to help everyone to keep active.

We're compiling support and advice for our sports clubs and physical activity providers.

We're spreading some positive messages from across the borough on our Twitter Page.

"At first, I couldn’t run, I could only walk. I was unsure about running but I was told we could walk and build up to running. I couldn’t believe it when I completed the 0 to 5K programme." - Tahreen
