Tackling Loneliness and Isolation

The Tuesday 2 O’Clock Club is the latest group in Calderdale to help tackle loneliness and isolation, with the help of a Community Foundation Grant.

Based at Stones Cricket Club in Ripponden, the club is the brainchild of club member Kate Turner and is run by volunteers.

Mental Health 

Many Voices focusses on working with women and girls in Calderdale, and is being delivered in partnership by Square Chapel and Verd De Gris Arts, placing us in a great position to work with people from different backgrounds and age ranges across the district. And the focus on women on girls doesn’t mean there’s an exclusion zone, we’ve had quite a lot of boys take part, too! It simply stems from a recognised need that sometimes women and girls need specific spaces, support, encouragement and opportunities.
