Yvonne has been Labour councillor for Hoxton West since 2016, working with individual residents, tenants’ organisations, community groups, faith groups and businesses to take up their issues and hear their ideas for our area.
Alongside her fellow Hoxton West councillors, she has successfully campaigned for more council housing in the ward, the first of which will be built in the next year. Priority will go to local people currently in unsuitable accommodation.
Yvonne is also Mayoral Advisor for older people, ensuring that the voice of older people is heard in everything Hackney does as a council.
During Covid, we have seen residents come together to help each other, and Yvonne would like to build on this, encouraging more opportunities for the generations to come together. Hoxton West should be a place where young and old feel part of their community.
