Hackney Wick Youth Voice

The Hackney Wick Youth Voice project started in December 2016, with the aim of empowering young people in Hackney Wick to have their voices heard. It is commissioned by Wick Award, through the National Lottery “Big Local” initiative.

The project is led by Luke alongside two paid young project assistants and a panel of local young people. They have run events and workshops in the local area and in local schools, and have consulted with local decision-makers about the future of Hackney Wick and how the area could be improved for young people.
