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.

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.

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.
