Get involved locally

Ever wanted to do more locally? There are a number of ways you can get involved in the local community:

Community Advisory Panel meetings: these are meeting where local residents set the priorities of the local Safer Neighbourhood Team in our area. The meetings are approximately every two months in Yorkshire Grove Community Hall. You can contact the Safer Neighbourhood Team on 020 8721 2922 or
07879 603037 or check for the next meeting date here.

Stoke Newington Ward Forum: Each ward in Hackney has its own ward forum which is run by local Councillors and residents as a way to improve the local area together. These meet every three months, and all residents are welcome. At recent meetings we have discussed the High Street, problems with late night noise from venues, illegal parking and plans to improve green spaces in the area. To find out when the next meeting is, there is more information here.

Becoming a Hackney School Governor: The Learning Trust, which runs Hackney schools, is always looking out for people to be Local Education Authority Governors at schools. For more information and an application pack, call 020 8820 7369 or download one here.

Joining the local Labour Party in Hackney: We meet once a month in Stoke Newington  ward, and have a guest speaker on local issues and updates from your local councillors. Being a member of the Labour Party is a way to get involved locally and meet your fellow neighbours, and to help change things for the better in Hackney. Contact us on stokenewington@hackney-labour.org.uk for more information on getting involved, join online here and find out about what the Labour Party does in Hackney here.
