You may be interested to know, Staying Well is made up of 3 teams of staff. Each of the teams are employed by different local community anchor organisations. The teams come together and work in harmony, whilst being managed by a local anchor organisation. This allows us to understand our local community and it’s needs.
Town Hall in Hebden Bridge / Upper Valley
The Town Hall, Hebden Bridge is one of a handful of community-owned Town Halls in the UK and is a symbol of what a community can do when it pulls together with a common ambition and vision. Our vision was to transform the Town Hall into a state-of-the-art centre for community and creative enterprise – putting it back at the centre of the town’s civic life. The Town Hall also works as our Upper Valley base.
