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 savings resulting from the proposals to restricting the Access fund would be outweighed by the negative impact on children and families. It would make it harder for parents and carers to go to work, which could affect their mental health and have a knock on effect on the whole family. You said this would badly affect those who are already vulnerable

Given the overwhelming objection to the proposed changes and the potential impact on families who are already vulnerable, the decision was made to not restrict the Access Fund. Instead, we will explore ways of building the level of SEND provision in a number of early year’s settings across the district, by providing specialist outreach support and monitoring. This will give us a range of settings which are already equipped to support children with SEND, which will help the funding to go further.

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.
