Our Recent Work

2018 Annual General Meeting
Our 2018 AGM featured a presentation by Paul Butcher, Calderdale Council’s Director of Public Health, based on the Council’s Public Health Annual Report 2017-18, which looked at the lives of older people in the Calderdale area. We videoed the presentation and have broken it down into six clips, each with a separate theme. View Videos

Interview – Calderdale’s Adult Social Care. In 2018 met up with Calderdale Council’s Head of Adult Social Care, Iain Baines and interviewed him and asked him about a wide range of topics related to adult social care in the area. Iain kindly agreed to be videoed so that we could share his answers with a wider audience. View Video

Care Aware! Thank you to everyone who took part in our “Care Aware” survey. Calderdale Forum 50 Plus wanted to find out more about the social care available in Calderdale (in particular the “Gateway to Care” service run by the council), how people access it, what services they access and who provides those services. We ran a small, informal survey to act as a discussion piece. The key findings can be seen in our Care Aware Video.


Issues & Concerns Survey

We are always keen to identify the issues, concerns and worries that affect your daily life and bring them to the attention of local government and private or commercial service providers. Our “Issues & Concerns” survey was run through September and October 2016 and we are now able to share the results. The “Changing Times” video below summarises the results. A more comprehensive breakdown of the survey’s findings can be downloaded here: Issues & Concerns (word file).
