Source By: Outward

Barnabas is a new supported living service providing people with autism the opportunity to have their own flat in the heart of Hackney in East London, where they can enjoy their own space, learn skills and develop their independence with the assurance of having on hand support from a caring and skilled team 24 hours a day.

 

The service is based in a refurbished townhouse, located in a quiet area of Hackney. It is close to Homerton Overground and the buses. The townhouse consists of four self-contained, one-bedroom flats. There is also an enclosed courtyard at the back, which staff and tenants will use for barbeques and other social gatherings.

Celebrating Hackney women

Source By: Hackney.gov.uk

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.
