Neighbourhoods

Hackney Neighbourhood Conversations & Covid-19. A joined-up response to the pandemic.

We are fast-tracking a Neighbourhood Conversation in each of the 8 NHS Neighbourhoods. In each Neighbourhood we are supporting a local voluntary organisation to host the conversation and inviting local VCS organisations, the council, the NHS, the volunteer centre, tenant’s leaders, volunteer groups and councillors to take part.

The aims of the Phase 1:

  • to build connections and to work better together
  • to be kept up to date with current information and guidance to help organisations deliver support on the ‘frontline’
  • to build a sense of what is happening on the ground that can be shared with Hackney Council, the NHS and Hackney CVS.

The aims of the Phase 2:

  • to continue to build connections
  • to share new and relevant information and guidance to support organisations to deliver on the ‘front-line’
  • to identify and utilise assets and expertise across each Neighbourhood to develop shared solutions
  • to co-ordinate action on key Neighbourhood issues, with a priority of achievable impact and benefit
  • to identify and address concerns that are preventing people getting the support they need
  • to providing ground level insight and feedback on key support services and resources
  • to support development of more local ownership, with broader and more diverse representation.

Phase 3

Current workshops

Health Impact: There is so much information and data about Covid-19 and health out there. This workshop will help us make sense of it all, and you’ll have an opportunity to ask Public Health and NHS any questions that you or the residents you support might have.

Signposting and Connectivity: What information do you need to make sure residents can access all of the support available from other groups and services? How do we make sure you know the right people to connect with that you trust will take care of the residents you support?

Collaboration and working together: A session open to anyone interested in developing collaborative projects and activities in your Neighbourhood. Join us to kick-start discussions and support a working space building ideas for joint local action.
