The Pembury Children's Community is a partnership led by the Council and Peabody housing association focused on improving the lives of the 1,000 children and young people and their families living on and around the Pembury estate in Hackney.
The Children's Community brings together key local stakeholders including residents, community groups and service providers. Our approach is threefold - working with individuals to build their confidence and personal capacity, working with the community so they are better able to support each other, working with services to ensure that support is accessible, effective, and aimed at long term sustainable improvements.
Together with residents we have developed a vision for Pembury in 2025:
- a neighbourhood where people are proud to live
- a community where people from all backgrounds come together, where everyone matters and there are opportunities for all
- a place where young people are encouraged, inspired and empowered to get the best out of life
