Hackney Labour's manifesto for 2014
I want you to know exactly what Labour wants to do for Hackney over the next four years. Our borough manifesto sets out our pledges to make Hackney a great place to succeed, enjoy, grow up, live and to call home.
Over the last decade, Hackney has changed for the better thanks to the leadership Labour has shown on the Council, from our schools now achieving above the national average in GCSE results, to over 6000 new affordable homes having been built, and our parks and green spaces being amongst the best in London.
However, Hackney has taken the brunt of the Government’s cuts, and we know there will be yet more to come. We will continue to defend residents against this Tory Government’s cuts – the worst reductions to the public sector in more than 60 years - and support people through the welfare changes.
But to build a great future for our borough, we must do more – Labour’s vision is for Hackney’s communities to be stronger and more cohesive. Our ambition is that no one is left behind, and that we build capacity in individuals and families to support themselves and take advantage of education, skills training and help to find jobs.
Hackney residents can have confidence in us to deliver our promises. This website outlines Labour’s record in Hackney, and sets out our pledges for the future. Please do get in touch if you have any comments or ideas – we’d love to hear from you.
Mayor of Hackney
