Ovenden & Mixenden Initiative

Managed by the North Halifax Partnership Ltd, the work of the Ovenden & Mixenden Initiative is to represent North Halifax communities in Calderdale wide strategic plans, advising service heads about how things work at a local level.

Also known as the Halifax North and East Team the organisation provides support to local people in the wards of Illingworth & Mixenden, Northowram & Shelf, Ovenden, and Warley (including Pellon).

The team includes Ward Link Workers and Community Wardens and is co-located with Pennine, West Yorkshire Police and Calderdale Council staff at the Pennine Housing Office, Turner Avenue South, Illingworth. We also run a hotdesk from Mixenden Library offering general and some specialist advice.

The team also provides community information via the Halifax North & East Blog, Halifax Work Support, local newsletters and small scale events and celebrations.
