Calderdale Communities Matter Project

"For a Community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on love & concern for each other"

The ongoing Covid 19 pandemic has not been discriminative in its  disruption and destruction. It has had a significant impact on everyone, everywhere : Individuals, families, businesses, economy, NHS and health care services, effecting everyone socially, mentally physically and financially. CCMP was created to address the needs of the community by working together in the interest of the  people  of the community.

CCMP was created to address the needs of the community by working together in the interest of the people of the community.

So what does that look like?

From March 2020 until January 2021 we have been, on a voluntary basis, supporting over 550 individuals /families and 3 schools throughout Calderdale, weekly,  working 7days a week,

We ensured we meet the immediate needs of people struggling with accessing food, by sourcing, packing and delivering food parcels with the help of grants from the Community foundation. Hebden bridge Rotary and various fundraising and donations.

We have also ensured people are supported with material needs by working holistically with people and actively providing interventions and co-creating solutions

Working with social services/ social care/ probation/ police/ housing/ DWP/ Mental health teams to name a few, to ensure that not only are immediate needs met, but, people felt supported and empowered in all aspects of their life.-
