November was a huge month for Active Calderdale, as we submitted our request for our first round of LDP funding, which will be instrumental in the rollout of system change for the borough. A significant amount of effort has been put into the application, and subsequent visits from Sport England. That’s not all that we got up to of course, our work continues to bring the systems of Calderdale together to create the most active borough in the North.

In October we submitted our pathfinder application to Sport England. As one of the 12 Sport England local delivery pilots across the Country, we are seeking to address physical inactivity levels through a focus on engaging the whole system and changing how it operates so physical activity is embedded within the day to day workings of a wide range of partners. The application has been in development for over a year; developing opportunities through a collaborative approach with partners from health and social care, community and voluntary sector and transport and planning.

The rain of September 2019 did its best to keep us indoors (especially for our parkrun day), but there has been some truly impressive work from across the Active Calderdale network that we’d like to update you on:

August was a busy month for working together with Calderdale workplaces, and voluntary & community organisations. This article highlights the great work we’ve been doing to help embed physical activity in those areas.

The unique blend of scenic countryside and historic architecture makes Calderdale a great area for walking. Building on the success of walks set up from GP practices - ‘surgery strolls’, we are looking to develop new walks that provide everyone with the opportunity to get involved.
Active Calderdale has worked with CREW heart support group and local GP practices to recruit and train new volunteer walk leaders. The new walk leaders are looking to develop and lead short walks from GP practices around their local areas, providing accessible social walks for everyone.
