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 will be relocating the service to the Clock House building on Huddersfield Road in Elland. We anticipate the service will move around Autumn 2022.

The reason we’ve chosen this location is because:

  • we want to make it easier for everyone to access the new service in a more centralised location for families from Calderdale and Huddersfield
  • we want 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.

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.
