3 YEAR FUNDING AVAILABLE
We are providing up to three years funding for projects which work to improve outcomes for communities affected by the three key issues identified via Vital Signs as those most key to improve the lives of people in Calderdale.
The three areas are:
Poverty and Deprivation
Watermark Calderdale is a campaign to build a resilience fund for our towns for future flooding.
Our aim is to build a pot of money that can be accessed by businesses & households immediately when future floods hit (because they will – it may be 5 years time or it may be next week!). Shops or businesses sell a WATERMARK product, and a percentage (or all) the profits go into a fund. The fund is managed by the Community Foundation for Calderdale who will then distribute the money if floods hit Calderdale again.Find Out More
