ACCESS INITIATIVE LAUNCHED

Hebden Bridge Partnership and the Community Foundation for Calderdale have jointly launched a new initiative, Making Hebden Bridge Accessible for All.  Our aim is to make our town an exemplar in terms of access, for both local people and visitors with disabilities.

  Local businesses and organisations are invited to take part in a (voluntary) Access Audit to identify small-scale steps which may make their premises more easily used by those with access needs. Subsequently, grant-funding (typically of £1000-£2000) will be available from the Foundation to undertake improvements identified in the audit.

To take part in the audit, please complete this form. (Press release about the initiative is here)

2020 vision

 

 

 

Hebden Bridge Partnership is the ‘town team’, concerned with initiatives to improve the economic and community life of our town.

Our Action Plan, Vision 2020, identifies a number of priority areas for our attention in the coming years. The final version of the Action Plan follows our earlier draft, launched in May 2013, and has

 

 

been amended in the light of feedback and comments. Details of all comments received can be found on the website.

We presented at the 2015 AGM our report on the progress made in 2014-2015 in trying to meet our priority actions.

Our 2016 Annual Report is available here.
