An exciting heritage project to conserve and manage some of Hyndburn's woodlands.
This project is about raising awareness of global and local environmental issues and also the work of PROSPECTS itself
The funding allows PROSPECTS to create and enhance habitats for wildlife whilst providing natural resources to encourage organic practices on a wide range of community food growing sites.
Whinney Hill is an industrial reclamation site, covering 15.20 hectares, which was landscaped and planted with trees a number of decades ago.
A community grant scheme for environmental projects in Hyndburn
Thanks to funding from the Windfall Fund and the Lancashire Environmental Fund we are able to carry out conservation work with community groups, schools, PROSPECTS Panels, partner organisations and volunteers
We provide support to Woody (Hyndburn) C.I.C., established under our Social Enterprise Development Initiative.
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
Protecting and enhancing local wildlife and plant life.
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.
Publicising global and local environmental issues and promoting the work of PROSPECTS.
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.
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.
Grants are available to community groups throughout Hyndburn for environmental projects which will improve the quality of life of local residents and contribute to the sustainable development of the Borough.
