Calderdale Community Anchor Network (Calderdale CAN)

What is a Community Anchor?

Community anchors are independent community-led organisations operating in a local area. We are firmly rooted in a sense of place and committed to positive economic, social or environmental change.

Calderdale Council is the first Council to have adopted a community anchor policy, to state their commitment to working in partnership with us.
