The ‘Castleford Together Project’ is our biggest community activity project to date at Castleford Heritage Trust.

Funded by the National Lottery, and running until September 2025, the ‘Castleford Together’ project is about: connecting people, increasing personal and community wellbeing in the town, supporting the development of new and existing skills and supporting local people to feel confident to take their next steps forwards.

We know that there are many strengths within our community and a real passion for positive change in the area – this project aims to shine a light on what the people of Castleford can do as well as offer new local opportunities.

Across a three-year timespan the Castleford Together project offers:

  • 18 Community Event Days
  • 12 Community Exhibitions
