Welcome to my October to November Mayor’s Report.

 

Dear Member,

Welcome to my October to November Mayor’s Report.

This month has been dominated by the build up to the Autumn Budget and continuing our work on the Hackney Labour 2018 Manifesto, both of which I cover in my report below.

As we approached the Budget myself and my Cabinet colleagues continued our work to lobby, campaign and highlight the impact of austerity on Hackney. As you can read below we have had some successes in areas such as housing, business rates and universal credit, but while the Government my claim that they are listening the Chancellor’s actions and interventions are much more limited than his rhetoric and the devil will be in the detail that comes forward in the days and months ahead.

We continue our work on tackling inequality and supporting Hackney residents to access new jobs and training, earlier in the month we marked London Living Wage Week and our broader work in this area was recognised in London Council's report: Promoting Successful Integration in London it looked at our leadership on community cohesion. Hackney a Place for Everyone and the Young Black Men’s Project (YBM). Only last week colleagues including Deputy Mayor Bramble took part in a conference to highlight YBM, more details can be found here: https://hackney.gov.uk/young-black-men and in the Hackney Gazette.

We also for the first time marked Trans Awareness Week which ran from 13-19 November continuing our support for our Trans employees, residents and the wider LGBTQI+ community.

Best wishes,
