EHEN is about making connections between environmental organisations in East Hampshire. Sharing knowledge and experience, building support and co-operation on environmental projects. We also plan to offer services such as fundraising advice, communications support and skills matching.
We are a Community Interest Company and a sub group of the East Hampshire Community Partnership. Any income we make as a result of providing services will be ploughed back into the project.
EHEN aims to be self sufficient but welcomed initial grant aid from East Hampshire District Council and receives some ongoing support from the East Hampshire Community Partnership.
"Sustaining and improving our environment is something we cannot do alone and initial meetings with local individuals and organisations have shown that there is a lot of expertise, knowledge and commitment that we can share. The network is a means of achieving this and, as it develops, I hope it will have an important role in linking people, promoting the issues and building on action that is already taking place."
