Established in 2002 Know How North East (KHNE) is a third sector not-for-profit company with charitable status that provides services throughout the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees.
Within our Stockton-wide programme we have a strong geographical dimension, focussing our efforts in areas with the highest indices in terms of deprivation, unemployment, educational attainment and benefits dependency; with the aim of creating change and opportunity for individuals, families and communities.
We operate three resource centres in the communities of Newtown, Port Clarence and Arlington Park.
Our strengths lie in identifying local needs, promoting and ensuring community consultation and participation, regenerating priority areas, reducing the impact of poverty, promoting partnership with other agencies and sectors and levering funds from a range of sources.
We work with a range of organisations to deliver quality targeted support to individuals and families most in need of support across a range of programmes.

Our principal activities are:
• Whole household and Family support programmes
