Resident participation

Warm spaces small grant funding

Our resident participation team has awarded £40,000 to 14 community partners to extend their warm spaces offer and provide a warm welcome to anyone living in Hackney.

We are also working with our Over 50’s Groups to expand their activities to offer a safe space to socialise, relax and save on their heating. These projects also provide support and signposting services.

The first 11 to receive funding are listed below. The remaining schemes will be added shortly.

Participate and help make housing better

You can individually get involved in our various consultations and reviews throughout the year or collectively set up a residents group to discuss and suggest projects to improve your local estate and neighbourhood.

You can attend the neighbourhood panels, resident liaison groups and tenant scrutiny panels to monitor the Council’s housing performance.

Housing services resident engagement strategy

In 2021 to 2022 housing services ran the largest consultation we have ever carried out. We ran the consultation to find out your views on how we talk and listen to people living in Hackney Council homes.

Through a process of co-production with residents we have developed the housing services resident engagement strategy. We developed the strategy based on the feedback you gave us about the areas we need to focus on to improve. The strategy includes a wide range of proposals designed to help enable you to get more involved in:

  • influencing our services
  • enhancing the quality of life in your local area

The strategy also offers better support to our tenants and residents’ groups.

Community development funding

Funding and support is available for residents who live in Hackney Council properties and would like to get together with their neighbours to do a community development project or engagement activity that brings people together.
