Bridging Opportunity Gaps in Hackney: A Collaborative Endeavor

In partnership with Hackney Council, we are co-producing a Greater London Authority-funded Employment Skills and Adult Learning program: “Improving Equality of Access to Job Opportunities across Hackney.” This explores why young Black and global majority residents feel less optimistic about finding work in the borough since 2018.

Following Hackney council employees and community leaders as the project unfolds, and employing an iterative methodology, we are incorporating the knowledge and expertise of community leaders into the council’s project. Working with government and the Hackney community, will co-create an enhanced and ethnographically informed Employment Skills and Adult Learning program, fostering optimism and empowering the community.
