Rob's welcome

Welcome to the Summer issue of Plugged in

We’ve been particularly busy at Hinkley Point C in recent months. We delivered our biggest achievement to date, which you can read more about throughout this issue, and we’ve also been working hard on our community and regional commitments.

One of those is making sure that a significant proportion of our workforce is drawn from local people, and I’m delighted to say that this figure now stands at 50%. Even if you’re not directly involved with the project, you may have friends and family who are, or you may live in a community that’s benefiting from one of our funded initiatives.

On one day in July, Hinkley Point C’s Inspire team took part in six school events, inspiring nearly 1,000 local students. You can find out more about how the project brings wider benefits, through educational initiatives like this, community funding and local enterprise.

I hope you enjoy this issue and please do send us your feedback.
