We are a community group formed last year to bring together and empower local unemployed people.
We meet every Friday (12-2pm) and lunch is provided. Meetings range from practical workshops to professional advice sessions. From discussions on health issues to knowing your benefits rights; stop and search issues to signposting free skill workshops in the borough. We often have speakers from other community organisations to inform us of what they are doing.
Why not come along.. take part in our activities and share some lunch.
Where: Community Hall, Navarino Mansions, Dalston Lane E8 1LB
1st Meeting: March -Time: 12.00 – 2.pm (all are welcome)
Friday 16th March - Age UK Hackney - Come and hear about opportunities for older people offered by the Age Well project. This is a mid-life project for people aged 50-65 years. Activities include walks, exercise, Yoga, and other healthy living activities. Also social events and computer training. Come along and find out more.
Friday 23rd March - Getting Organised - With a change in government and public spending cuts, change has arrived in the form of welfare to work, a cap on housing benefits, no decent employment prospects and rising prices. With so much change happening around us it is easy to feel powerless to effect these changes or even imagine getting the change that we want. Getting organised and working together is the only way we can affect what is happening in our lives. This session will explore why and how we can organise to improve things in Hackney.
