The State of Calderdale has been renamed We are Calderdale. For details on each year's assembly, see We are Calderdale .

The State of Calderdale assembly is held annually. It is hosted by Calderdale Council to bring together key representatives from the public, private, and voluntary and community sectors. Each organisation has its own priorities, many of which are similar to other organisations in the borough. The event enables a discussion between all partners as to how to meet these priorities, identify where there may be gaps and provide opportunities for working together. By targeting our resources together, we can work together to make the most improvements for Calderdale.

The theme for the 2018 assembly was Calderdale Vision 2024 - Calderdale Council will be 50 in 2024 and the vision is our ambition for where we want to be by our anniversary.

You can also watch the keynote speech from the 2018 assembly, given by Lord Victor Adebowale, Chief Executive of Turning Point: State of Calderdale 2018: Keynote speech.
