The purpose of HBP is to promote, facilitate and contribute to more integrated social and economic development of Hout Bay to improve livelihoods and quality of life and building common ground in a context of diversity.

The values of HBP are integrity, transparency, diversity, inclusivity, and respect.

The FoP can help by using resources available to them to render up support for projects, raise funds for initiatives, share knowledge and skills, advise, mentor, share rescourcesand generally assist with whatever it is that is available to them, with the time and effort that they are willing to share with the HBP. 

How long can you be a “Friend to the Partnership”?
