The National Emergencies Trust has launched an appeal to raise funds to help local charities to support those individuals suffering hardship as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. The National Emergencies Trust will distribute money raised through a number of charitable organisations including local Community Foundations, to ensure it reaches those who need it most.

Community Foundations are well placed to support local charities to overcome challenges presented by this ongoing emergency.

We are giving grants and supporting organisations who are helping those most affected by Covid 19. If your organisation needs extra funding to help you support our Calderdale communities who most need help please send an email to Rob Billson, [email protected] to request an application form.

You can donate by visiting our Local Giving Page  or please contact Steve Duncan on 01422 349700 if you wish to support the Fund or make a donation directly into the Foundation’s bank account at the Yorkshire Bank – Sort Code: 05/04/49 Acc. No. 70400958

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.
