The Prospects Foundation is an environmental charity working within the district of Hyndburn in east Lancashire. We work with residents, community groups, schools and other organisations to develop and implement environmental projects and programmes that fit within our five sustainability themes of Food, Biodiversity, Energy, Recycling and Transport.
Through our new Social Enterprise Development Initiative (SEDI) we now have an officer in post who is currently working with residents and groups in the five Accrington wards of Central, Church, Barnfield, Peel and Spring Hill. The SEDI officer is working with the community to identify at least 16 potential social enterprises that will then be reviewed and assessed resulting in a final selection of 4 that will then be set up as social enterprises.
The four new social enterprises will provide tangible social and environmental benefits to the residents in the five wards.
