Hackney GIving

Times of need

Hundreds of Hackney charities and community groups work hard to tackle deprivation in the borough. They support people during times of need and help change people’s lives for the better. But in this time of economic uncertainty our most vulnerable residents need help more than ever. Public funding for charities is falling, but our residents’ needs are increasing.

Hackney Giving priorities

Hackney Giving will support not for profit community groups that support people with employment and training, and health and wellbeing:

Employment and Training

  • Improving financial wellbeing through employment opportunities
  • Giving those who have lost their job the skills and resources to get back into work
  • Engaging those furthest from the job market and helping them into employment pathways
  • Nurturing entrepreneurship and improving employability

Health and wellbeing

  • Bringing people together through sports, social activities, and cultural events 
  • Promoting community participation
  • Improving health and wellbeing
  • Encouraging social inclusion
