Each month Voluntary Action Calderdale put together a brief round-up of news and events in health.
The aim of the newsletter is to help you keep up-to-date with information and developments in health; by collating health related news from a range of local, regional and national organisations.
The Engagement Champions project is working in partnership with Calderdale Council to undertake a survey with local residents to determine their experiences and opinions of travel in the local area.
The method of engagement will be a series of door to door interviews to be conducted following the introduction of the new 20mph speed limit to determine resident’s views since its implementation.
This work will be paid at a rate of £7.50 for each completed survey. Payment is made to your chosen local community organisation or charity.
The work MUST be carried out between Monday 1 August and Wednesday 7 September 2016 and will involve weekend and evening work.
To take part in this work you must be a trained Engagement Champion and attend a briefing session.
We can also offer training for newly interested people which will run back to back with a briefing session as listed below.
