Many of our projects and programmes are funding dependent and come and go. Here’s what our team are currently involved with. There’s a list of our closed or past projects here.

VANEL is the LTO (Locally Trusted Organisation) for the Big Local North Cleethorpes programme. We’ve been involved since the beginning of this 10+ year programme. Find out more.

Working with Big Local means we are delivering a range of community support programmes in North Cleethorpes including the KOPS programme (Keeping Older People Safe); Stay Safe guides and more.

VANEL provides the main administration for Neighbourhood Watch across North East Lincolnshire and we have a separate website at with information about this and all our community safety and neighbourhood projects.

We’re working with two allotments in North East Lincolnshire on an experimental approach to site safety using technology. This Allotment Technology project is funded through the Humberside PCC.

The Humberside PCC is also funding a programme for VANEL to deliver items of personal or household safety equipment to residents and households across rural wards of North East Lincolnshire. This is our Cache: Rural Rollout project.

We are supporting six schools across North East Lincolnshire (including 3 in the Big Local area) with their Green Influencers projects.

Clee Clubs is our project to engage Cleethorpes residents with social activities for their wellbeing.

The East Marsh Safer Streets programme has now closed, but VANEL are administering a few legacy and closeout parts of the project.

We deliver Fraudwatch training sessions on Scams and Fraud.

Our lottery funded Neighbourhood Networking programme allows us to support neighbourhood level and resident led groups working in their communities.

Neighbourhood Networking also means we are the administrative point of contact for Neighbourhood Watch in North East Lincolnshire. And Karl is currently the Chair of Humberwatch which we are closely involved with.

VANEL provides administrative support to the GRIP CIC programme.

We’ve delivered a lot of projects and programmes over the years that are now complete or closed. We’re assembling an index of archived projects here for future reference.
