Celebrating Hackney women

Source By:

This year is the 100th anniversary of women over 30 getting the vote for the first time in the UK. This paved the way for universal suffrage 10 years later when women won equal voting rights to men.

Throughout the year, we will be celebrating the achievements of local women, past and present, and the contribution they make to our communities through various events and exhibitions.

As part of this, we are looking to showcase 100 Hackney women who are driving change and making a difference in their community, and are asking residents to send in nominations. 

Nominate a Hackney woman

Nominees should live or work in Hackney and be driving change in their community. For example, they could be:

  • women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM)
  • young leaders
  • community volunteers
  • equality campaigners, including LGBTQI+, disability rights, race and discrimination
  • those helping to end violence against women
  • arts and culture, including writers, poets, spoken word artists, directors
  • sportswomen
  • women in public life, including politicians and business leaders
  • women in public services, including the police force, fire brigade and NHS staff

We want to hear about your inspirational local women. If we haven't listed an area you would like to nominate someone from, please do still nominate.

We will be collecting nominations until November 2018. All nominations should include a photograph of the nominee with 100-200 words explaining why they should be celebrated as part of the 100 Hackney women.

Nominate now

Nominations can also be posted to: Tara Hudson, Communications, Culture and Engagement, Hackney Town Hall, Mare Street, E8 1EA.

Job opportunity with London's Violence Reduction Unit

The opportunity

Director of Violence Reduction Unit

Tackling violent crime is a key priority for the Mayor.

Violent crime has been rising across the country since 2014, particularly in large Metropolitan cities

On 18 September the Mayor of London announced the setup of a new Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) to tackle the causes of violence in London, building on the work already underway as part of the Mayor’s Knife Crime Strategy. The causes of violent crime are extremely complex, involving a variety of deep-seated societal problems such as poverty, social alienation, mental ill health and a lack of opportunity. The solution to violent crime will therefore require a complex, holistic and varied long term approach.

The new VRU will take a public health approach to tackling violent crime. In practice, this means intervening at critical moments in a young person’s life; for example, if they have suffered trauma or been excluded from school. This approach has proved highly successful in cities across the world – most recently in the UK the public health approach has been credited with contributing towards a halving of the murder rate in Glasgow between 2004 and 2017.

The unit is a new London partnership involving specialists from across the city, including health, police, criminal justice partners, local government and communities. At the Unit’s heart is the aim of better understanding the risk factors in early life that can lead to violence and establish long-term approaches that address these factors. This work will happen at all levels in the city by working with boroughs, local police Basic Command Units, the health service, criminal justice agencies and communities. This is the first time that such an approach has been taken in a city as large, and as prominent on the world stage as London.

Of critical importance for the post will be establishing and maintaining effective relationships with partner organisations and communities including young people. The successful applicant must have a natural ability to empathise with those on the front line dealing with violence and be able to inspire organisational and behavioural change across a wide range of stakeholders. This role offers the opportunity of implementing a public health approach to violence on an unprecedented scale and will act as a national, or even international, centre of excellence.
