Hackney Community Strategy Partnership

The Hackney Community Strategy Partnership is our local strategic partnership board. It ensures that we, and the organisations that work with us, are working towards our collective vision for Hackney.

We consider the whole borough and work across organisations, to looking at the big challenges are that no single organisation or partnership can solve on its own, and work towards solving them together.

The board aims to:

  • set clear priorities for how our partners work towards the vision set out in the community strategy and review them every year
  • work out what our partners need to do to achieve our joint aims, and influence and shape the agendas for formal partnerships when needed
  • enable businesses, voluntary and community organisations and residents to play their part in delivering our priorities for Hackney


The board membership is made up of key officers from the Council and our key local partner agencies eg the police and representatives from the business and voluntary sectors.

The community strategy partnership board meets every year in the autumn.

Community partnerships in Hackney

We are proud of the innovative and successful work done in recent years by Hackney’s excellent local partnership boards and its community networks, such as the Young Black Men Programme, the Integrated Gangs Unit, our local safeguarding boards and the integrated commissioning of local health and care services. Our approach to the big issues we face continues to be built on the successes and learning from this collaboration.

Team Hackney

Team Hackney was Hackney’s previous local strategic partnership. It was established over ten years ago and was relaunched in April 2013 with a fresh set of principles, a new way of assessing progress and a more coordinated approach to community insight. It builds on the very strong partnership ethos which has been established and maintained in recent years.
