Development Work

Our Management Committee of Voluntary Trustees

This is a busy time for The PROSPECTS Foundation.  Under-funding for core costs in recent years left us with a back-log of important development work to carry out.  Now that the Charity Development Manager post is fully funded, the Trustees are focusing on matters that will help to ensure the future sustainability of the PROSPECTS environmental movement in Hyndburn.  We have never had so many sub committees!

Important Issues

In the last 12 months the Trustees have focused on: - 

  • Setting up the Windfall Community Benefit Fund, a new source of grants for 'Sustainable Development projects in Hyndburn which we administer on behalf of EnergieKontor;
  • Development of our charity-owned land at Coach Road Meadows to benefit both local people and the charity;
  • Reviewing our governance structure to ensure it better reflects the groups and volunteers we work with;
  • Demonstrating impact, both with an external evaluation of our work, and by developing new impact assessemtn tools to measure our social, environmental and economic outcomes;
  • Human Resouces: reviewing and updating all our policies and procedures;
  • Review of our core purpose, future direction and activities;
  • Moving to the new PROSPECTS Environment Centre on Broadway, Accrington;
  • Securing continuation funding for existing projects and funding for new projects.

We are very grateful tio the LankellyChase Foundation, Tudor Trust and Lancashire County Council for their funding support with this important development work.
