Active Calderdale have made a booklet available for anyone who needs a little extra help getting active at home.
As we all continue to stay at home as much as possible to help protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our NHS, it can be harder to build active into our normal everyday routines. That's why this guide has been developed to support the residents of Calderdale to stay physically active and healthy at home.
