Information for parents

Young Hackney is a part of Hackney’s Children and Young People’s Services.

In addition to offering activities for all young people, through youth clubs, sports sessions and citizenship programmes, we also offer advice and support. This includes advice about employment, health, education and housing.

Working together with our colleagues in Children and Young People’s Services, as well as partner organisations we are able to offer intensive support for young people who need it – for example, young people who are looked-after, who have been arrested, or who are dealing with a problem of substance misuse.
