I support the Hout Bay Partnership, how can I get involved?

The Hout Bay Partnership (HBP) was established in 2014 with the purpose of promoting integrated
social and economic development to improve the livelihoods and quality of life of Hout Bay
residents. This will be achieved through building partnerships between residents, businesses and
government. The Partnership has been established as a not-for-profit company and is governed
by an independent board of directors.

HBP welcomes the support and contributions of individuals, organisations and businesses who
agree with the purpose and goals of the HBP, who subscribe to its values (human dignity,
integrity, transparency, diversity, and inclusivity) and who are willing to adopt a collaborate
partnership approach. Details of the activities of the HBP will be made available on its website.

Kinds of support and contribution
HBP board. The HBP has a board of directors that reflects the diversity in Hout Bay and has the
