Public sector partnerships

Hackney Giving is a trusted and experienced partner for the public sector. We can develop and manage a grants programme for you so that your funding reaches voluntary and community sector partners.

Since April 2020, we have distributed public sector funding totalling more than £2.3 million. We have worked extensively with City and Hackney Public Health team as well as with colleagues in North East London Clinical Commissioning Group.

These partnerships were established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and demonstrated clearly the value of cross-sectoral work. We are honoured to have played a part in building a successful model of multi-sector partnerships and are pleased to be able to continue this work into the future.
