SPOTLIGHT ON… More than a jobs service

During its construction and operation, Hinkley Point C will create thousands of opportunities. A dedicated service has been created to give local people access to new vacancies.

Community Fund provides local support

The HPC Community Fund invests into helping out important local projects. One recent example is Stogursey Victory Hall, a modern facility built to serve the local and wider community.

Visitor Centre is on the move

The Hinkley Point Visitor Centre is moving from its former home in Bridgwater’s Angel Place shopping centre to its new location at Cannington Court.

Green space revamped to allow access for all

The Wembdon Parklands and Community Together (PACT) initiative is a great example of how the HPC Community Fund is helping to make a positive difference for local people.

Our route to a lasting legacy

It’s not just construction that has come a long way. We’re working hard to ensure the wider benefits of Hinkley Point C will last for generations to come.

Elevating young people’s careers

Hinkley Point C teamed up with Weston College this summer to deliver Elevate, a work readiness programme for 16-21 year olds preparing for their future careers.

Getting the Hinkley Point C workforce from A to B

Making sure Hinkley Point C workers can get to where they need to be on a daily basis is essential to the smooth running of the Project.

Rob's welcome

Facing Covid-19 has made 2020 a tough year for everyone in the community and on site – and there’s been little good cheer in recent news. I want to thank you for your patience, support and understanding as we find ways to work safely and to stop the spread of infection. You can read more about the latest measures with our recent features. 

Our approach means we’ve been able to continue making good progress on the project in 2020. You can take a look at an overview of this and previous years’ developments with our special video feature.

Construction is just one aspect of Hinkley Point C. It’s our goal to create a lasting legacy for the region so check out our socio-economic timeline feature to find out about the progress we’ve made in supporting and delivering projects that bring community, educational, economic and environmental benefits to the South West.

I hope you enjoy our latest articles. Please get in touch with the Plugged in team if you have any stories or feedback you’d like to share.
