Launch of our free guide to community organising

What is community organising?

It seems like everyone is talking about community organising these days. Hackney Unites have been practicing it for eight years, and with the help of Trust for London, we thought we would share our understanding and help others to begin to organise their community.

We are still preparing for our contribution to the More in Common weekend (celebrating the life of Jo Cox MP murdered for her commitment to social justice) which we are hosting on 17 June.

Our next meeting will be at Hackney CVS (The Adiaha Antigha Centre, 24-30 Dalston Lane, E8 3AZ) from 5:30pm till 7pm. It is very important that groups wishing to play a role in the event try to send a delete if at all possible. This is where decisions will be made.

Just to reiterate

We are organising a More in Common event which include elements of arts festival, community networking, debates and discussions, workshops, yoga, and food! We are also hoping to host a Hackney short film festival (so please send in your suggestions).

Already over 30 community groups want to be part of this. There are too many to list, but they include: Hackney CVS, Amnesty international, Caribbean Elderly Organisation, Hackney Yo

Fit 4 Health Exercise after Stroke Scheme

Source By: Triangle Care, Stroke Project

Fit 4 Health – Exercise after Stroke/TIA scheme (EASS) is an established free community based service positioned at the final stage of rehabilitation and re-enablement in health and social care. It supports individuals in the maintenance of healthy lifestyle changes and the subsequent transition to independent living. The free programme is designed to meet the long-term effects of stroke and the varied and wide-ranging exercise needs of stroke and TIA sufferers.

Fitness elements of the scheme are delivered twice a week over 8 weeks through gym and circuit based sessions. The clients are also encouraged to walk as much as possible and are given a walking package including a pedometer for the leaders to track client steps. In addition to fitness sessions, enablement days are organised to local facilities/activities and reward/feedback days are held to recognise client’s achievements.

The scheme will once again be delivered from Britannia Leisure Centre (am) and Clissold Leisure Centre (pm) on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
