Active Calderdale has been updated with two new sections with help and advise for individuals as well as sports and physical activity providers.
This covers latest government advice about staying safe, and links and advice:
For people who want gentle exercises,
For people with a disability or long term health conditions,
For people wanting more challenging activities,
For families – check out GoNoodle for some truly alternative songs and dances!
And ideas from other trusted sources.
This will be useful for anyone involved in providing physical activity through clubs and voluntary and community organisations. I have already sent it out but please share with your contacts too.
Please share what you’re doing to stay active using the hashtag #ActiveCdale #StayinWorkOut, it’s really inspiring.
If you have any ideas of how we can help integrate being active through your work please get in touch, we’d love to help.
Sport England are making a £20 million Community Emergency Fund available immediately for local club and community organisations who provide sports and physical activity. Apply now to bid for grants between £300 and £10,000. For full details visit Community Emergency Fund
As lots of us are now spending more time at home, it is more important than ever to keep active, to keep ourselves physically well and improve our mental wellbeing. Visit the Active Calderdale website for advice on keeping active at home, and check out the Active Twitter account for inspiration, home workout ideas and lots more.
Walking and cycling are great ways to explore your local area, keep fit and improve your mental wellbeing. Remember to stay at least two metres apart from other people, use gloves when opening gates or crossing stiles and wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds when you are back home. If you’re lucky enough to live in Calderdale, the VisitCalderdale website has some great ideas and tips for walkers and cyclists.
The UK’s favourite street dance team, Dance Along with Diversity, is offering free access to its online tutorials until May.
If you’re getting active this weekend, we’d love for you to share it with us on Twitter using #ActiveCdale! We’ll be promoting all of the ways we’re keeping active in Calderdale – you never know, you might inspire someone else. If you’ve got an ActiveCdale T-shirt don’t forget to wear that too.
We understand times are unsettling, we’ll support you to figure out your next steps.
Whatever is on your mind, from school to college to apprenticeships, money, CVs, jobs … get information, advice, support and guidance on the phone, by email or Facebook chat from careers advisers.

The nation joined once more last Thursday at 8pm from their doorsteps, windows and balconies to clap and make some noise, expressing their gratitude to those who still work tirelessly during these uncertain times to keep us going.
This event, which started on the 26th of March, was inspired by Annemarie Plas, from Brixton, south-west London, who was inspired by a similar initiative in her home country of the Netherlands, and in many other countries.
It is a novel way to express thanks to all the wonderful members of the NHS, not forgetting other emergency services, carers, street cleaners, supermarket workers, post office workers, as well as all other essential key workers.
