Our PROSPECTS Panels continue to work tirelessly in their local communities.  The groups, based in Baxenden, Church, Clayton-le-Moors with Altham, Great Harwood, Huncoat, Oswaldtwistle and Rishton, continue to identify and develop new community projects whilst maintaining existing ones.  Our Panel/Forum volunteers provide the backbone of the charity and we are extremely grateful for their support.  Thank you.

The PROSPECTS Foundation currently supports 8 Panels, which are based in towns throughout Hyndburn. Each Panel is a community group made up of local residents, or those with an interest in that particular area, and membership is open to anyone.
Each member brings something to the group, whether it be local knowledge or technical expertise and by harnessing these skills and experience, the Panels are able to identify local environmental needs.
In response to these needs the Panels work to develop locally owned projects, which contribute to environmental sustainability.
The first Panel was formed in 1996 and since then the Panels have completed a number of projects in order to improve the environment and quality of life for the local community.
