Community payback

Local residents and community groups are being invited to suggest outdoor spaces, streets or building in Hackney that could potentially benefit from a facelift through the Community Payback Scheme.

The London Probation Service and Hackney Council will consider all requests for jobs, so long as the work visibly benefits the community. The first Community Payback project - the Lea Bridge Tow Path - was suggested by local residents back in April and is now complete after 1000 hours of work. The team has also completed work on 30 Hackney Homes gardens where residents had been unable to maintain these themselves.

Do you have a favourite place in Stoke Newington that could benefit from the project? Let us know or fill in the online form here.
