Retrofit Calderdale: Flooding and Retrofit

19/04/2023, 5:30 pm7:30 pm

Are you a Calderdale resident interested in learning more about home retrofit? Join us in this workshop to learn about flooding & retrofit!

About the workshop

Our third workshop looks at the link between flooding and retrofit – why it’s important, what can be done to make our homes more resilient and how a community approach can be powerful.

During the session, you will:

  • Learn about the impact of flooding on homes
  • Learn the difference between resistance and resilience measures
  • Learn how retrofit and flood resilience can be combined
  • Hear examples of community level responses to flooding and how we might protect our homes
  • Understand which organisations provide further advice in relation to flooding and homes.

There will also be a practical activity: we will look at some maps of the area, explore different types of flood risk and add your local knowledge.

About the project

This workshop series is for householders interested in learning more about the basics of retrofit, applying this to your home and sharing knowledge and learning with other local residents.

Carbon Co-op’s Retrofit Calderdale project, in collaboration with Pennine Community Power, aims to empower residents in Todmorden to explore the possibilities of retrofitting their homes, creating cosier spaces, reducing energy bills, and improving the efficiency of their homes through knowledge sharing, workshop events, and technology.


We will be meeting at Todmorden College in one of their rooms. We are keen to protect everyone’s health as much as we can, therefore we will be providing face masks and sanitiser, and welcome and support anyone to use these during the session. We have placed an upper limit of 35 places to ensure we have plenty of space, and everyone can take part in the activities. Booking is essential for attendance!

Coming up

We have planned one final workshop after this event, scheduled for May, which will cover the topic of Home Energy Assessments. Subscribe to our Eventbrite organisation page to be alerted of this and other future workshops and events.

Please note: These workshops are aimed at householders who want to learn more about retrofit. This is not a workshop for people working in the supply chain or seeking to promote a specific product or service – we will ask salespeople to leave the session.
