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.

Short breaks for disabled children enable families to ‘recharge their batteries’ and they are essential to enable carers to maintain employment, but some felt that the hours were restricted and transporting a family member with complex needs can also restrict their access. Families do not always know what’s available to them, and they would value more after school and holiday provision.

We will refresh the short breaks statement for 2017/2018, ensuring we continue to provide the services that are valued by our community. We need to continue with overnight short breaks, and further develop after school services and provision for breaks provided in the community. We also need to develop a sustainable range of services provided by the voluntary and community sector that will enable young people to achieve positive outcomes whilst giving families a break from their caring role.

You gave us useful insight about what is and isn't useful about using My Health Tools. Users valued the access to self -management resources, reflecting on health, goal setting and monitoring and prompting change.

This has provided valuable insight into the use of technology to help people manage long term conditions, and the useful and not useful features of the online platform. This information is being used to further develop the tool, help promote its use and inform future evaluation.

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.
