This is an exciting time for Calderdale Forum 50 Plus as the council has just committed to making Calderdale an “age-friendly” region. With more than a third of residents now aged over 50, the role of the Forum will become more important over the next few years.
Anyone with an interest in the organisation and running of the Forum, are warmly invited to attend. The meeting is expected to last until 3.45pm and refreshments will be provided.
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 07946 510900.
About the Forum
Calderdale Forum 50 Plus is a voluntary group that supports and represents people aged 50 and over in Calderdale and highlights information and issues which are useful and important to this age group. We also signpost and connect older people to local groups, clubs, societies, charities, as well as events and service providers. We collate guidance on key later life issues such as housing, benefits and finance, care of all kinds and physical and mental health.

Invictus Wellbeing and FC Halifax Town are planning a new pilot initiative aimed at boys aged 14-17 year old.
Running three sessions of 5-aside football and peer led intervention sessions between February and March (dates to be confirmed) these sessions will use football as a way of addressing issues such as anxiety, low mood, anger management and emotional regulation.
It is our belief that football can be an effective tool and vehicle for building confidence, self-esteem, community cohesion, resilience and importantly for this project, opening conversations around mental health and wellbeing.
These sessions will run at the Shay Stadium, Shaw Hill, Halifax HX1 2YS
