Together We Grow aims to promote the social and emotional wellbeing of asylum seekers and refugees by providing a wide range of events and activities that enable them to enjoy nature, create positive memories and meet local residents in Calderdale.
Together We Grow is run by volunteers and supported by a management committee from 7 different countries which ensures that we provide a wide range of activities. We work in partnership with many local groups who have been very keen to welcome asylum seekers and refugees.
Activities include a monthly walking group, visits to the cinema, theatre, museums, local towns, parks, funding gym memberships and swimming lessons and joining in local festivals and events. Past events have included a seaside visit and an overnight camping trip.
