We want to overcome social isolation and mental health, by empowering communities to participate more in community life and understand family health related illnesses/issues.

We started off with International Women’s Day, we organised a ‘Feel Good’ event, this encouraged women to sign up to a variety of projects, including a befriending scheme and social activities to help overcome social isolation and mental health. This empowering tool for communities to participate more and become more aware of community issues, and learn what they can do to support them.

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.

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.”

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.
