Supporting the local community
As part of the development of Hinkley Point C, we have committed £20 million of community funding to improve the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of communities that are affected by the construction of our new nuclear power station.
Our community funds have already delivered almost £10 million of investment into local projects and have been managed by both West Somerset Council and, more recently, by the Somerset Community Foundation.
Together, we have supported a large number of community projects across the local area. From a new play area and a village hall in Stogursey, to a new cycle path in Brean; museum restorations in Watchet and an Education Business Partnership for Somerset, to name but a few.

The Beach Hotel prides itself on sourcing from and working closely with local producers. The food does the talking from a menu that reflects modern English cuisine with a French influence.
The Community Fund contributed £12,500 to the project, allowing a new Theatre Kitchen to be designed and installed for use by experience staff and new trainees from the community alike.
The Together Team work in partnership with local councils, housing providers and the police to promote a strong sense of community within Sydenham and Bower. The Together Team also seek to increase local community aspirations by encouraging participation and volunteering in order to make the local area an attractive and welcoming place to live, work and enjoy.
Coronation Park and Sydenham Community Hub are two much-needed community projects that benefitted from a £60,000 Community Fund donation. These venues are designed to bring the community together and to provide activities and space for the community to use.
The Wembdon Village Hall and Sport Pitches is a facility that has been built for both residents of Wembdon and the wider Bridgwater community to use.
The space provides substantial facilities for meetings and events as well as unrivalled sports facilities. It also includes parklands and walking areas for all to use. The Community Fund was able to contribute £250,000 to complete this high-profile regeneration project.
