KiNETIC is for disabled adults living in Kirklees. It is also for staff, volunteers and trustees from any community group, charity or social enterprise in Kirklees that works with or supports disabled people in Kirklees.
We are a constituted group, and our committee is a mixture of representatives from local groups like Outlookers, Callaloo Carnival Arts, Mencap in Kirklees, Howlands and Experience Community and local disabled people.
The network is supported by TSL Kirklees and Kirklees Council.
