Community Consultation 2021


Back on the Map is a charity passionate about enhancing the quality of life of people living in Hendon and the East End of Sunderland. We work in the heart of the community to create; A Stronger Community, A Better Place and An Influencing Role for residents. We want to be a sustainable organisation so we can continue to provide vital service for the local community, so we use money we earn from our houses to pay for community services; growing our model of community led regeneration.

We create A Better Place by buying & renovating empty and/or run down houses and letting them to local families who become good neighbours and stabilise the community.

We create A Stronger Community by working together with local people, we transformed the old branch library into a thriving community facility that supports over 900 individuals each year. We recently turned the former DIY store into a wood workshop and community space. These venues provide vital services and activities for local people.

We create opportunities for residents to have An Influencing Role by bringing together local people and key agencies together to identify local priorities, together we can influence service delivery in our area. We also create opportunities for local people to get involved at all levels of our organisation.

Why are we asking these questions?
Before we decide what to focus on over the coming years we want to know what you want and what you think is important. The following questions are designed to understand your needs and will shape what we do. Our work will be based on what the majority of residents ask for.
