Hackney CVS co-ordinates Hackney iCare – an online directory of health and wellbeing services across the borough.
iCare lists services provided by local voluntary organisations as well as statutory services, bringing together diverse services including:
• exercise classes
• community centres
• social activities.
iCare is aimed at Hackney residents, carers, professionals, family and friends – who may sometimes feel isolated and want to find out more about local services.
“Hackney iCare is a great resource for local residents, who can complete an online referral form to help establish their level of need for social care. They can also build a Wellbeing Plan online, identifying their health and wellbeing goals and identifying a shortlist of appropriate services. The iCare website gets over 12,000 views a month, so I would urge local organisations to contact us with their up-to-date information.”
