We want to provide a safe and supportive space for women to put their needs first and feel more involved in their area. We need professionals to offer their expertise on engaging women to think positively, build trust and feel energised to take the necessary steps to putting their needs first.

We hosted weekly drop on sessions focussing on wellbeing, including practical, social and emotional support targeting vulnerable and socially excluded women in the Batley and Heckmondwike area. There were a range of events and fun activities that were made possible with the help of local volunteers. These activities increased social networks and enabled women to be more actively and meaningfully connected within their communities.

That we need to build relationships, trust and enter in dialogue with people to develop with them further sustainable health and wellbeing interventions. Engage the community through developing a healthy lifestyle through physical activities.

We held fitness sessions in the community, working in partnership with local community groups to engage members, giving them the tools to feel more confident in improving their health and wellbeing. Members commented “I feel a lot better about myself”,“I have started appreciating the track round the sports field and using it more.”

The proposed increase in funeral costs were too high and that some people struggled to afford funeral costs now. The majority opposed the proposed increases in fees for various reasons.

Having considered the feedback from the engagement process, the Cabinet moved away from the full cost recovery proposal and asked officers to revise the proposals so that the Cabinet could carefully consider the charges for next year with a view to agreeing a longer term strategy.

Hello, welcome to Involve

Involve is a tool to help Kirklees Council and local public services, to plan and share community involvement work - like public events, surveys and consultation.

You can use it to find past, present and future involvement across Kirklees. Involve will tell you what's happened since the work has taken place as well, so you can see what difference getting involved has made.

You can use the calendar below to see what's happening, including things you can get involved in yourself.
