Welcome to the Prospects Website

The PROSPECTS Foundation is Hyndburn’s community owned environmental charity and we are something of a unique and wonderful organisation. We were established by local residents as a company limited by guarantee in 1998 and became a registered charity in 1999.

Our aim is to improve people’s quality of life through positive environmental action. By working with a diverse range of groups in Hyndburn we aim to inspire young people; improve health and wellbeing; support communities; improve the environment; and encourage sustainable living.

All our projects fit under one of our six themes of sustainability

OUR 6 THEMES OF SUSTAINABILITY

Biodiversity

Protecting and enhancing local wildlife and plant life.

Energy Conservation

Promoting home and community energy efficiency which could lead to warmer homes and reduced fuel poverty and encouraging the use of renewables.

Local Food Growing

Encouraging local and organic food growing and increasing access to healthier food.

Environmental Awareness

Publicising global and local environmental issues and promoting the work of PROSPECTS.

Sustainable Transport

Encouraging greater use of sustainable transport means encouraging more use of public transport, bicycles and walking and recognising the additional health benefits of increased physical activity.

Recycling

Increasing waste minimisation and recycling is about identifying more ways of reducing, reusing and recycling everyday waste that could lead to a cleaner, greener, healthier environment.

THE WINDFALL FUND
