Meet some of our centre members.

We are proud to work alongside our diverse community of centre members who come from 57 countries. Many volunteer with us and some are Trustees and staff.

They are surgeons, parents, woodworkers, poets, activists, sculptors, scholars, plumbers, journalists; each with their own story and contribution to make to Calderdale and beyond.
