Our vision for Calderdale in 2024 is for a place where you can realise your potential whoever you are, whether your voice has been heard or unheard in the past.
We aspire to be a place where talent and enterprise can thrive.
A place defined by our innate kindness and resilience, by how our people care for each other, are able to recover from setbacks and are full of hope.
Calderdale will stand out, be known and be distinctive.
A great place to visit, but most importantly, a place to live a larger life.
Where we are
Kind & Resilient
Enterprising & Talented
How it started
2024 is an important year for Calderdale
It’s the year that marks our 50th anniversary and will be a time to celebrate and reflect on what’s been achieved over the last half century.
But where do we want to be by 2024? How will the Calderdale of then be different from the place it is now? What ambitions do we share?
2023 One Year To Go!
This year’s We Are Calderdale event was bigger than ever, marking one year to go until Vision 2024.
Over 300 people gathered to hear the story of the Vision – how far we have come since it was launched in 2018, stories from local communities, where we are now with a year to go, the future beyond 2024 and how everyone can work together. The event also highlighted the distinctive culture that makes Calderdale so special ahead of the Year of Culture in 2024.
It was a thought-provoking morning, with inspiring accounts from partners and performances from Calderdale College and Trinity Sixth Form Academy students bringing the Vision story to life.
