Covering the Halifax Town and Skircoat wards of Calderdale.

What is the fund for?

The fund is to prevent and tackle loneliness and isolation in Town or Skircoat wards and we are specifically looking to fund the following:

  • Increased knowledge of activities in area
  • General health & wellbeing like walking groups, physical activities in church community hall.
  • Volunteer involvement
  • community cohesion, supporting all communities to engage in activities
  • Support for dementia friendly activities

Where has the money come from?

The Town/Skircoat Fund includes funding from Community Foundation for Calderdale. Read more about the fund here.

How much can I apply for?

We haven’t set a limit on what you can apply for but that’s not say it’s a bottomless pot!

If you’ve got an idea for something that meets our priorities for Town or Skircoat wards, give us call to discuss. Even if we’re not able to fund all your project we might be able to help in other ways.
