North prospect
Take A Part have worked with North Prospect on the Ham Woods project.  The Nowhereisland Radio live play and broadcast days were also hosted at the Halcyon Centre in North Prospect.

The North Prospect Neighbourhood is situated within the South West Locality of Plymouth.  The Neighbourhood population is significantly younger than the City average with more under 19 year  olds and less residents over 70 years of age. North Prospect has a high proportion of low income families, many of which are single parents, with children of school age. They generally reside in large social housing estates on the edge of the City.

The main housing type in this Neighbourhood is semi-detached, which constitutes nearly 62% of the housing stock. There are significantly fewer flats compared to the City average.  The Neighbourhood Scorecard indicates that although North Prospect is generally not performing well in the areas of Crime and Health when compared to other Neighbourhoods in the City, there has been recorded improvements in these areas over the past three years. A high percentage of vulnerable Families, Youth Unemployment and a poor education attainment are the biggest challenges for the Neighbourhood.

Within the area of Crime, the level of Reported Incidents of  Domestic Abuse Crimes is improving and performing well. Environmentally, the rate of Reported Incidents of Missed Bins is also performing well.
