The Hangleton and Knoll Project exists to work in partnerships with residents to access and develop opportunities and resources and to facilitate positive change as identified by the residents of our communities.
The broad aims of the charity
- To assist and support existing community groups and to work with local residents to set up new groups as they are required by the community.
- To act as a facilitator for external services wishing to provide services to the community residents
- To promote and support the development of community buildings, parks and open spaces.
- To encourage the participation of local residents in all forms of voluntary activity, education and employment which may improve the quality of life in Hangleton and Knoll.
What makes the Project so special?
- Our Trustees have many years of knowledge and experience and a passion for the local community. In fact, the Chair and Vice Chair have been involved with the project since it first began and, along with the majority of the Trustees, are themselves members of the community.
- There is now a strong community infrastructure in Hangleton and Knoll that has developed with the support of the Project.
- Many, many community groups (too numerous to name) have been established over the years with the Project's support. Many of these are still going strong and benefitting the wider community today in a variety of different ways.
- We employ staff members who are themselves local residents, who were initially supported as community activists and volunteers within the community.
- Our origins and development from within the community means we are uniquely positioned to effectively bring together a wide range of activities; including community development work, detached and project-based youth work, and the provision of community learning courses and IT support, to improve the quality of life for our area's residents.
- We are privileged to have a high level of resident involvement in all the Project’s activities.
- We are innovative, flexible and always willing to try new approaches for the benefit of the wider community.
- Still going strong after 40 years, the Hangleton and Knoll Project provides a model of good practice for how a community is able to effectively develop and manage its own resources.
Our Community Development Team members: Claire Johnson, Clare Hopkins, Aleya Khatun and Claire Hines.
Our partners and funders
We currently work with over 70 statutory, community and voluntary organisations to enable their specialisms to benefit our local communities, and provide better outcomes and support for our residents through our range of partnership projects. The Hangleton and Knoll Project would like to thank all of the individuals and organisations whose hard work and generosity has allowed us to make a difference in our community. More information about our current and previous partners and funders can be found in our Annual Reports.
The Hangleton and Knoll Project (HKP) may use the information you have provided to report to funders on targets, milestones and service use. We use only anonymised data to complete funding reports and apply for new funding. We use collected data to: understand who is using our services and look for points of exclusion; record and agree and plan our work; and raise the profile of HKP.
All original documents are kept securely by HKP. Registration and equalities forms are kept for a maximum period of 2 years, and then securely shredded by a professional certificated service.
HKP uses community photographs to promote the Project in:
- print publications (local newsletters)
- online publications
- social media
- community events
- Project reports (including Annual and Funder reports)
Being able to raise our profile in this way helps us to let people know who we are and what we do, this helps us make contact with new (and new to the Project) residents, and also helps us with attracting new funding. We are therefore extremely grateful to the people that are in our photos.
If you have any questions about how your data (personal information) is protected, please speak to a member of HKP staff or contact Lulu via email@example.com or 01273 706469.
We are currently working on updating our Data Protection Policy in line with the new GDPR regulations.
GPDR: The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) effective from May 2018 gives all EU citizens more rights and protections for their personal data, to minimise the possibility of theft and fraud.
