Roadside imageDo you live in Calderdale or Kirklees? Do you know anyone that lives in Calderdale or Kirklees?

We need your help!

We are delivering a Baseline Census for Calderdale and Kirklees Council. This means we are trying to find out how many Gypsies and Travellers live in Calderdale and Kirklees, what kind of accommodation they live in now and what they might want for the future. It's a simple survey, 5 questions on one side of paper.

Paid work is available through Leeds GATE to deliver the surveys with people living in Calderdale or Kirklees.

Give us a ring on 0112 240 2444 if you can help!

Calderdale and Kirklees includes these places:

  • Dewsbury
  • Cleckheaton
  • Heckmondwike
  • Batley
  • Liversedge
  • Mirfield
  • Huddersfield
  • Holmfirth
  • Halifax
  • Brighouse
  • Sowerby Bridge
  • Hebden Bridge
  • Mytholmroyd
  • Todmorden

The councils will use the information from the surveys to help them plan what services and accommodation are needed in the area so it's really important that we get people's views so that the plans they make are the right plans for the community.

We did a Baseline Census in Leeds in 2004 and Leeds members will remember delivering the surveys for us, the information we found out has been really useful in making things happen in Leeds.
