Our Neighbourhood

“I enjoy seeing what goes on and the activities on offer in the centre – it is quite an incredible set up, with lots going on. It is a major part of life in Hendon.”

Community Activity in the Local Area

At Back on the Map we know local people care about the place they live, we actively work you, local residents, to improve neighbourhoods by arranging litter picks, green space clean-up events, environmental projects and recycling campaigns.

We work closely with partners including Sunderland City Council and Northumbria Police to host monthly Ward Councillor Surgeries and Police & Communities Together meetings. Our staff can also support residents to address issues including HMO’s, ABS, Graffitti and fly tipping at a mirco neighbourhood and/or street level. 

Street Clean Ups

Our Clean Team staff and volunteers carry out litter picks in streets, report fly tipping, educate residents on waste management and encourage recycling.

East rangers

Our Rangers work across the Hendon area carrying out a variety of tasks such as; clearing, raking, cutting grass, edging paths, planting wild flowers on local green spaces.

Local Voice

We support residents to have their say on local issues and address neighbourhood problems such as ASB, HMO’s and Housing Conditions.
