To support plans to expand Calderdale Royal Hospital, we needed to find a new home for the Rainbow Child Development Service.
This gave us the opportunity to explore buildings away from the hospital sites and after careful consideration, we have relocated the service to the Clock House building on Huddersfield Road in Elland.
The reason we chose this location is because:
- we wanted to make it easier for everyone to access the new service in a more centralised location for families from Calderdale and Huddersfield
- we wanted to create a one stop shop (children’s community hub) by locating other services, such as our specialist nursing teams and some community therapy services, in the same building
- the Clock House offers plenty of safe parking and improved accessibility.
The Rainbow Community Hub celebrated its grand opening on April 20, 2023. You can read more in our Latest News section.
We are really excited about the move and have co-designed the building with children and families who use and have experience of our service.
