Connect Hackney commissioning round launched - attend a workshop

Connect Hackney commissioning round

Connect Hackney has been running for nearly three years and in that time, 2,500 older people have participated in a range of projects and activities aimed at improving their wellbeing and designed to reduce or prevent their social isolation. Connect Hackney is a £5.8m programme funded by the Big Lottery’s Ageing Better, Fulfilling Lives fund which is aiming to establish learning and evidence to inform future policy and practice on interventions that are successful in reducing social isolation amongst older people.

Connect Hackney have learned a lot over the last few years and it’s another exciting time, as we approach the half way stage of this six year programme, with £1.3m to allocate to projects/activities over the next three years. Working with older people, reviewing research data and working with stakeholders has enabled us to update the programme plan and commissioning priorities for April 2018 onwards.

We are pleased to launch the start of our next round of commissioning, by inviting proposals for projects aimed at improving the wellbeing of men and older adults with learning disabilities. Connect Hackney programme data shows that to date, we have had low levels of participation from people from these target groups, despite evidence showing that individuals from these groups are more likely to be at risk of social isolation. Information on the tender specification is available below.

We will also be releasing information over the next two months about further commissioning opportunities, including tenders for Community Connectors and Digital Inclusion, along with opportunities for Connect Hackney to support small locality based projects. For further information, please visit the Connect Hackney website or call the Connect Hackney team on 020 7923 8360.

Tackling Hate Crime - Workshop invitation

Tackling Hate Crime - Workshop invitation

Hackney Council have launched a 10 week consultation to gather feedback on the draft strategy for tackling hate crime.

Hate crime is often targeted towards a person’s identity and can have a harmful effect on its victims and whole communities. The Police and the CPS define hate crime as any criminal offence that has been committed which the victim, or anyone else, thinks was motivated by "hostility or prejudice" based on: disability, race, religion, transgender identity and sexual orientation.

Hackney Council would like to know your views on how the draft strategy could make a difference in your community. They would also value your feedback on the key objectives and actions identified in the strategy and the role you and/or your community could play in helping to implement the strategy.

The Council invites you to a dedicated workshop session with other advocacy groups and organisations representing the views of those likely to be impacted by the Council’s strategy for tackling hate crime. Two workshops will be taking place on Tuesday 27 February 6.30pm to 8pm or Thursday 1 March 11am to 12.30pm.
