Active Calderdale VCSE Charter – Why?Because when we move, we’re stronger
Active Calderdale works with communities to make physical activity and moving more a part of day-to-day life for everyone in Calderdale. Currently, 1 in 5 people in Calderdale are inactive: taking part in less than 30 minutes of activity per week. We believe every organisation can play their part in supporting and encouraging those who visit their organisation to move more.
