Hackney More in Common event

17 June 2017

A year after the brutal murder of Jo Cox MP, as the world gets darker, and at a
time when our communities are increasingly under strain, Hackney is coming
together to celebrate both our diversity and the vision of Jo Cox.
It is not a conference and it is not a carnival, but it will have elements of both.
We expect everything from yoga, to coding, from refugee and migrants rights,
to arts and crafts, from environmental concerns and housing campaigners,
to a fashion show from the college students. There will be debates and
workshops on a wide range of topics, oh, and did we mention the food!

See attached leaflet for more information - hackney-more-in-common-2017-02.pdf

Call for Grant Applications 

Digital Inclusion:  Increasing Access and Use of GP Patient Online Services  

Funded through the City & Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group [CCG]

This small grants scheme will fund activities aimed at increasing access and use of GP Patient Online services for the benefit of digitally disenfranchised patients.

The CCG and local GPs recognise that there are Hackney residents who are not currently able to make use of on-line services.   

This includes:

  • People whose first language is not English

  • Some older people and people with disabilities with no experience of using IT and the internet

  • Residents who still have no IT or internet access

Grant funding is available for voluntary and community organisations that can provide activities that will support more local patients to access and use GP Patient Online (POL).

Grants will be in the range of £4,000 - £11,000.    In exceptional circumstances we will consider applications for grants over £11,000.

Grants will be given for activities that:

  • Target specific groups of service users or community members who are digitally excluded and need support to access and use on-line services; and

  • Provide active assistance to patients to both register and use Patient Online services 

Timetable for applications:


DECISIONS:  26th May

Decisions will be made by a panel including VCS representatives from the CEN and the CCG.


This is a one-off pilot project with no expectation of further or future funding.
