Calderdale Community Grants Schemes

Calderdale-Council-logoThe Council runs two grants schemes for community organisations based in Calderdale.
The Community Small Grants scheme gives out one-off grants of up to £3,000 for voluntary and community sector projects that help achieve the Council’s ambition of making Calderdale a clean, safe, attractive and thriving area for people to live in, work in or visit.
The Community Festivals and Events Fund supports groups that are organising cultural events and festivals across Calderdale, with the aim to get more local people involved in the arts, and attract visitors to our towns and villages. A maximum award of £5,000 will be made to any individual Festival or Event.
There is also a specific pot of money within this fund for organisations that are proposing Festivals and Events following the Boxing Day floods. The aim is to celebrate all that’s great about Calderdale, sending out a clear message that it’s open for business. It is part of the Council’s continued work to help residents and businesses get back on their feet by boosting tourism, trade and morale
To be eligible to apply for any of these grants your organisation must:
• Be a voluntary, community or faith group
• Be properly constituted
• Have a bank account in the name of the organisation
• Be open and accessible to the community you serve
• Have a planned approach to safeguarding issues, if you are working with children, young people and vulnerable adults
The closing date for complete applications for both funds is Thursday 1st February 2018.  For further details visit the Grants pages on
Festivals and Events and the Small Grants Scheme or email grants@calderdale.gov.uk

 

Cabinet Budget Proposals for consultation 2018/19 to 2020/21

Budget Proposals 2018/19 to 2020/21

On Monday the 15th January 2018 Calderdale Council’s Cabinet met and agreed its budget plans to 2020/21. Calderdale-Council-logo

The budget sets out how much money is available for the Council to deliver its priorities and services over the next three years, and how that money will be spent. On top of the savings plans already in place, the Council has to reduce expenditure by a further £2.6m in 2018/19 and £8m in from 2019/20 onwards. This will mean making difficult decisions on how to deliver services with less money so we need your help.

You can read the overall consultation budget report, growth & savings proposals and initial Equality Impact Assessments (EIA) by clicking on the links below:

In summary we are proposing to:

  • raise Council Tax by 2.99% next year and add a 3% Social Care Precept on top to pay for care for our vulnerable adult residents
  • reduce the number of managers and other staff by merging teams and moving more services online
  • fund different priorities from the public health budget
  • increase the charges for some services that the Council provides, such as bereavement services
  • reduce some of the money we pay to West Yorkshire Combined Authority
  • spend less on IT, staff training and other internal support services

But, we also are putting new investment into some key areas:

  • Winter maintenance/gritting our roads
  • homelessness and destitution
  • deferring planned savings in Waste Services
  • an additional Fire Safety post to enhance Calderdale’s resilience to tragedies, like Grenfell Tower
  • extra funding to continue the Emergency Living Scheme

Your comments and views are important to us. To give yours:

Alternatively, public meetings are currently being organised and these will be publicised when the final arrangements have been made. We are also planning to consult with partner organisations in the voluntary/community sector, bodies representing vulnerable groups and the business community.

Consultation on the budget proposals will run for four weeks and end on Monday 12th February 2018. We would urge as many stakeholders as possible to comment on the proposals set out. If you can see better ways of balancing the books, then of course we want to hear your views and ideas. Final decisions will be made at the Annual Budget Council meeting on Monday 26th February 2018 (6pm start).
