Are you interested in being 1 of the 8 organisations to pilot this approach and receive a grant of £250 to implement your ideas?

Active Calderdale VCSE Charter – Why?Because when we move, we’re stronger

Active Calderdale works with communities to make physical activity and moving more a part of day-to-day life for everyone in Calderdale. Currently, 1 in 5 people in Calderdale are inactive: taking part in less than 30 minutes of activity per week. We believe every organisation can play their part in supporting and encouraging those who visit their organisation to move more.  Here are some examples to inspire you! Get involved – Voluntary and Community | Active Calderdale

Benefits for your organisation & everyone connected to it

Being an Active Calderdale organisation can have a huge impact on the health of everyone connected to your organisation.  Benefits to your organisation

  • Contribute towards delivering a holistic approach
  • Provide a more attractive, diverse offer as a service
  • Help to meet targets

Benefits to the people you supportEven small changes in activity levels can make a big difference

How do you become an Active Calderdale VCSE Charter Organisation?

Our ask of you is that you review your organisation against 6 criteria including how you make Moving More desirable, how you lead the way and provide people with the skills and knowledge and see how you can:

  • Support your staff and volunteers to ‘Move more’
  • Support your members / services user to ‘Move more’
  • Understand and monitor the changes being implemented and the impact the changes are having
  • Celebrate successes

Through partnering with Active Calderdale – We will provide support (knowledge, resources, funding, connections) to enable you to implement changes to help you meet the criteria.   When you’ve signed up, we’ll also send you an Active Calderdale VCSE Charter certificate you can display proudly in your offices, highlighting the positive changes you aim to make.
