Supporting Hackney’s organisations

As the umbrella body for the local sector, we recently developed a range of initiatives and offers to support you in your work. These were developed in response to what you told us in the annual user survey. Please see below for more information.

Our offer to smaller organisations in the sector

From our surveys, we know that organisations with a turnover under £100k struggle to rent space for meetings and events. In response, we are pleased to offer our conference room and training room for hire at a 50% discount to organisations with a turnover of under £100k. (Excludes weekends and evenings). To take advantage of this offer please contact our Operations Coordinator, Nathan De Souza: nathan@hcvs.org.uk t: 020 7923 1962.

Networking

You told us that you value networking with other organisations. In response we would like to offer 4 free networking days over the next 12 months across the sector to any organisations that want to host a themed event to get like-minded organisations together to work on a Hackney specific project. As part of the offer, we would help you to coordinate the networking day and to publicise it. If you would like to organise a networking event please email or phone our Director of Communities and Partnerships for an initial discussion, Jackie Brett: jackie@hcvs.org.uk / 020 7923 1962.

Costing a project – free one to ones with our Finance Director

Many of you identified a need for support on how to cost projects. In response we are delighted to offer quarterly one to one meetings with our Finance Director. Meetings will last one hour and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. The first advice day will take place on Thursday 13 June. Please contact Mark Boisson if you would like to book a space: mark@hcvs.org.uk.
