Calder Future (part of Calderdale Sustainability Forum) is a partnership between the local community and agencies which have responsibility for waterways within the Calder Valley, to bring a co-ordinated approach to river and canal improvements and provide volunteering opportunities for those that live and work next to the water.

Throughout its work Calder Future has been about improving the positive aspects of our rivers, but recently we’ve been forcefully reminded of their darker side if they and the surrounding landscape are not managed properly to reduce the risk of flooding. This requires an increased emphasis on ‘river stewardship’ and Calder Future, as a partner with Calderdale Council and the Environment Agency, will be playing an important part in delivering this essential responsibility.
