Local voluntary and community groups are being asked to have their say on how Calderdale Council can best support them in the future.

From this Wednesday to Wednesday, July 9, the Council is consulting on how it can use its funding in the most effective ways from April 2015 onwards.

As part of the Council's budgets, £220,000 needs to be saved in funding for the voluntary sector.

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, Councillor Steve Sweeney, said: “We know how important voluntary and community organisations are to our residents. More and more people are turning to them for help. We want to continue to support the great work that they do.”

The groups can complete an online questionnaire at www.calderdale.gov.uk. Different formats are available on request. The feedback from the consultation will go to Cabinet for a final decision in August.
