In the past few weeks the project has been focusing on building the Staying Well Hub; we want to connect the community and promote Elland as a place that cares about the health and wellbeing of its communities.
And we’re excited to announce that the local Staying Well Steering Group has just approved funding applications totalling over £32,000 for new projects in Elland including a Befriending scheme, Dementia Reading Champions and a transport solution to enable disabled people to attend social, leisure and health activities in the area.

Applications are now open for voluntary and community organisations throughout Barnsley, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield to apply for support from the Trust to help deliver creative activities in local areas.
The Calderdale Cares Lottery from Halifax Rugby League Football Club is administered by Community Foundation for Calderdale and has been set up with the aim of raising funds to support worthy charities, organisations and individuals in the Calderdale community.
The grants programme will support local organisations that will benefit Calderdale residents.
Unlike the National Lottery, which is £2, the Calderdale Cares Lottery is only £1 a week to enter.
You could win one of over 40 weekly prizes with daily draws (Mon-Fri) of £100, a rollover jackpot every Saturday of up to £2,000 and £5,000 super draws twice a year.
A minimum of 35% of every pound will be donated to support good causes across the Calderdale area, which is more than the National Lottery and Health Lottery as they only donate 28% and 20% respectively. To join, click here…

Is your organisation looking for funding for an event or equipment?
Monday 3 August is the next deadline for the Council’s Community Small Grants Scheme and Community Festivals and Events Fund.
Calderdale-based voluntary, community or faith groups can apply for up to £3,000 from the Small Grants Scheme, and up to £5,000 from the Festivals & Events Fund.
You will need to provide copies of your most recent annual accounts and an eligible constitution; if you work with children or vulnerable adults you will also need to provide a copy of your safeguarding policy.
In the past the schemes have supported youth groups, sports clubs, and community centres, as well as major festivals and events throughout the Borough.
