Using the Levelling Up Fund

Following extensive engagement with the Hackney Central community, we’ll work with partners and the community to deliver a series of projects across Hackney Central informed by:

  • building on the area’s strengths
  • addressing its challenges to create a more welcoming, accessible and inclusive town centre

The delivery of the fund is aimed at making the town centre:
