Calderdale groups and organisations have been signing up for the Quality 4 Health and Wellbeing (Q4H) accreditation in their droves recently, and as a result, will benefit from a £500 windfall.
The accreditation is designed to provide evidence to commissioners and funders that organisations have achieved exceptional standards of health and wellbeing service delivery. This is closely aligned with Active Calderdale principles, with physical activity being one of the key elements.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many aspects of people’s lives suffered greatly and access to physical activity provision was no exception. That was the case for a group of ladies from Stones Methodist Church, who used to attend a keep-fit session there before the Covid lockdown drastically affected their daily routine.
More recently, however, interest had been growing in setting up a new fitness class and in December 2022, Stones Methodist Church was supported to enable a tutor to provide 13 weeks of gentle exercise classes.
