That local people do not feel well informed about what to do in the event of a large-scale emergency.

The council is working hard to raise awareness and communicate to local people what to do in the event of a large-scale emergency such as flooding such as posting alerts and advice on our website homepage.

‘Staying Safe’ is an important issue to Children and Young People and they told us that they wanted to raise awareness by holding information giving events.

The Council, in partnership with West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, hosted steering groups and face-to-face reports with young people. These sessions helped to develop the Young People’s Road Safety Champions and promoted the reporting of crimes through ‘crimestoppers’.

A group of young people that help to look after someone at home, told us that carrying a Young Carers Card would help them at school when they were having problems.

The Young Carers Card scheme is now under way in Kirklees, and following a successful presentation to the Youth Parliament, similar campaigns have begun in North Yorkshire and Sheffield!

Hello, welcome to Involve

Involve is a tool to help Kirklees Council and local public services, such as NHS Kirklees, to plan and share community involvement work - like public events, surveys and consultation.

You can use it to find past, present and future involvement across Kirklees. Involve will tell you what's happened since the work has taken place as well, so you can see what difference getting involved has made.

You can use the calendar below to see what's happening, including things you can get involved in yourself.
