Hartlepool NDC Trust is a community led charitable company delivering innovative regeneration projects working with a range of partners to make a positive difference for the residents of central Hartlepool. It was established as a legacy body of the New Deal for Communities Programme that ran for 10 years at the beginning of the millennium.
The NDC Trust’s mission is to support regeneration initiatives and to develop sustainable community enterprise activity by undertaking the coordination and management of a range of projects, businesses and initiatives wherever opportunities arise, but that will serve to improve the quality of life of local people in Central Hartlepool.
What We Do
The NDC Trust is committed to minimising the level of empty homes currently in disuse or disrepair, allowing potential residents to choose from a larger range of accommodation, whilst also giving local neighbourhoods a boost in regards to aesthetics and property values. Alongside this, the NDC Trust operates a training enterprise called Opening Doors, it is tailored towards preparing trainees for work through the provision of real technical experience, whilst teaching them simple yet key attributes for work.
We also run a project named Housing Heroes which offers young people who are care leavers the opportunity to refurbish/renovate properties specifically chosen for the Housing Heroes project. They can also move in and live in the properties, they will be offered support to help them maintain their tenancies.
A resilient organisation delivering valuable social outcomes in partnership with other organisations through the effective management of social enterprises and services.
