There’s so much going on in our borough. From free and low-cost gardening and yoga, woodwork and sewing, community walks, cooking classes and jewellery making, volunteering opportunities and exercise groups (find out more about those here).
The Shoreditch Trust Community Connections team know all about the exciting activities happening in Hackney, from bingo sessions to free lunches.
We are here to help people get involved with things, especially if you have had problems which mean you find it hard to go out.
Community Connections is available across Hackney. We can meet you in a local community centre (or if you are over 50 and struggle to go out or travel alone then we can meet you at home) to talk about things that interest you, activities you might like to try and changes you want to make in your life.
If you decide to join a class or become a volunteer somewhere, we can come with you a few times to help you feel more comfortable.
Community Connections is for anyone in Hackney who wants to try something new. We often support people who have recently been through a big life change or who are looking for a new direction.
We help people to get involved with bingo, dancing classes, gardening, zumba, chair exercise, volunteering, cooking groups, ping pong, men's groups, days out, new jobs, community walks, yoga, tea dances, pilates, friendship groups, Taekwondo, lunch clubs, swimming, book clubs, karaoke and lots, lots more.
The Community Connections service is completely free. It is funded by Connect Hackney and Hackney Council. Some activities and classes may ask you for a small fee, but we will always check this in advance and make sure it is ok for you.
