Working for a fairer society

Hackney Giving is a simple, coordinated way to give funding, time or skills to help local not-for-profit organisations support communities in the borough. The programme is part of Hackney CVS, an organisation that has been championing charities locally since 1997.

Cost of living support: apply now

The increased cost of living is an ongoing problem for many people living in Hackney. We are inviting applications from not-for-profit groups working to support people with the cost of living in summer 2024.

Join our Community Giving Grants Panel as a volunteer

We are looking for volunteers to help us to decide how to allocate our funding for events that reduce isolation this summer. It’s an opportunity to help us develop a new way of working, giving residents more of a say over how charity funding is spent.
