Young Hackney

Young Hackney is our single service for all young people aged 8-19. We aim to help all of Hackney's young people to enjoy their youth and become independent and succesful adults. Our website has news, views and events for young people.

Young Hackney units

Young Hackney staff work in small teams called Young Hackney units. They run activities for young people and offer advice and help support to young people who need it, on subjects like education, employment, housing or health.
Young Hackney units also work on:

  • prevention - working with young people who might get involved in antisocial behaviour or crime
  • youth justice - working with young people who have been arrested to make sure they do not offend again
  • substance misuse
  • mental health issues
  • helping young victims of crime.
