We’ve created everyday democracy resources for schools in Kirklees to make sure that our young citizens can have a voice in the things that affect their everyday lives.
Got a great idea for making your local place even better? Want to connect with others who can help make it happen and raise funds to get your idea off the ground? Come along to one of our drop-in sessions in March to find out how to run a successful crowdfunding campaign.
Do you feel able to make your local place better? Please come to our online workshops to share your experiences, listen to other people’s stories and make new connections. Together we’ll improve our understanding of how we can measure people’s confidence in their own ability to change things in our local places – to have influence as active citizens.
We’re offering a safe and flexible one hour session that will help children and young people to learn what local councillors do, share how they feel about life in their local place right now, and explore opportunities to work together with councillors on community projects.
The Creating Kirklees project from West Yorkshire Archive Service will make thousands of never-before-seen archives available for you to explore, thanks to a £40k award from The National Archives.
We’re supporting citizens and organisations who have great ideas for making our local places even better. Come along to a free online crowdfunding workshop to find out how Growing Great Places can help you to get a great idea off the ground in your community.
Our everyday local democracy is about working with our citizens and organisations in our local places. That’s what we’ve been continuing to do over the past eight weeks. Just in a different way from what any of us were expecting. So on what would have been local election day, we wanted to take a few minutes let you know that we’re still with you.
We’re excited to introduce our two pilot high schools for our new Democracy Friendly Schools programme.
Our Working Group discussed Place Based Working in Kirklees.
Our Working Group discussed Kirklees Question Time events, the changing councillor role and our work programme over the coming year.
