2027 programme

Source By: 2027

2027 is a 12-month salaried job and professional development programme for talented people from working-class backgrounds who have experience of frontline community work. The purpose of the programme is for them to develop in trusts and foundations and use their insight and lived experience to shape how these organisations make grants. 


Professional development is a key component of the 2027 programme. Participants are brought together regularly for facilitated learning on topics such as coaching, management and impact measurement that have practical application for their day job but also lay the groundwork for their career progression beyond the programme.

Help shape Mental Health Services in City & Hackney

Mental Health Voice (a user involvement project) is talking to people about their views and experiences of the Wellbeing Network. We want to talk to people who:

•              Have accessed the network

•              Have not accessed the network but have experience of mental health difficulties.

The feedback will be used by London Borough of Hackney to help shape a future service supporting people with mental health difficulties.

The team can talk to people face to face, over the phone or as a group. Please let us know if it is an option for us to attend any existing meetings or groups to hear from people.

We are using the terms autistic and autism to cover various descriptions of autism, diagnosed or otherwise, including Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Asperger's Syndrome, Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and neuro-divergence.

The questions in this survey are for autistic people. If you are completing this as a carer for an autistic person please answer the questions with or on behalf of them.
