Hackney Council announces innovative partnership approach to further develop social enterprise sector in the Borough

Hackney Social Enterprise

Hackney Social Enterprise ..’ – ‘Photo Credit – Gary Manhine’

“Hackney has a proud history of social enterprise – HCT was founded here back in 1982 – but with this new partnership, it could be a real opportunity to take social enterprise in the borough to the next level.” – Frank Villeneuve-Smith, Communications Director, HCT Group
On Wednesday 21st February, representatives from Hackney’s social enterprise sector were invited to meet Philip Glanville, the Mayor in Hackney Town Hall to present the results of a consultation to create a Social Enterprise Manifesto for Hackney.
IMG_20170913_222758_357.jpg
Consultation on the Hackney Social Enterprise Manifesto, led by Hackney Co-operative Developments CIC on behalf of Hackney’s Social Enterprise Partnership (Hackney Co-operative Developments CIC, Bootstrap, Company, Hackney CVS, Hackney Roots, Hackney Council, Shoreditch Trust, UBS, UnLtd and Urban MBA), has gathered ideas from over 250 social enterprises for how Hackney Council, with support from the sector can work together to further recognise the existing role social enterprise plays in the borough and to support the development of social entrepreneurship and social ownership going forward.

The Consultation Results highlight three strategic aims for the sector locally: to promote awareness & understanding of social enterprise, build capacity and reach within the social enterprise sector and to provide a platform of resources and support for social enterprises. Suggestions for Hackney Council include innovative approaches to areas such as planning, procurement and communications.
MercyfulGrace Diaries - No Scars - #NAZ
“This is an exciting day for the social enterprise movement in Hackney with Hackney Council really demonstrating their understanding of how much the social enterprise sector can contribute to the social, environmental and economic wellbeing of the Borough. We are grateful to all the social enterprises who contributed to the consultation and are pleased to be working with the Hackney Social Enterprise Partnership to push this agenda forward.” Edward Quigley, CEO, Hackney Co-operative Developments CIC
See video from Social Enterprise in the City event 2017 celebrating Hackney winning Borough status:

 The Mayor, Philip Glanville, who has supported the consultation since it was launched at the Social Enterprise in the City conference at Hackney House in November 2017, has welcomed the suggestions and the efforts of the sector in undertaking this piece of work. Today, senior officers from the Council have announced their plan to work collaboratively as part of Hackney’s Social Enterprise Partnership to run a series of workshops to use the ideas generated from the consultation to create a realistic and actionable action plan that the Council and social enterprise sector can co-publish later this year.

“I’m very pleased to see the results of this manifesto consultation with the social enterprise sector and the significant steps taken to get here today. In light of recent budget announcements, it is more important than ever that every penny spent by the council achieves maximum social value for residents. By supporting the growth of this sector we hope to use more of their passion, innovation, and expertise, to see more jobs for local people and the development of a more caring society. Through our role in Hackney’s Social Enterprise Partnership, Hackney Council commits to work with the sector to ensure the best of social enterprise thinking is embedded throughout council policy and the everyday life of the borough.” Philip Glanville, Mayor of Hackney
20170927_015849.jpg
This level of in-depth partnership work puts Hackney at the forefront of innovative local social enterprise development and follows best practice guidance from Social Enterprise UK who awarded London Borough of Hackney recognition as an official Social Enterprise Borough in 2017.
“Hackney has always been a tremendously creative place, ahead of the curve in so many ways and it’s no surprise to see such a strong and vibrant social enterprise movement in the Borough. This dynamic social enterprise landscape is making a real difference to people’s lives in many ways including helping people get into jobs and providing health and wellbeing services. The Council’s support for the sector has resulted in the Borough being accredited as an official Social Enterprise Place.
Love - MercyfulGrace Blog
 
Embracing social enterprises is crucial if we’re to build genuinely inclusive communities – they are creating jobs where they are needed most and leading the way when it comes to pay, diversity and innovation. They represent the future of business and it’s great to see the Council working hand in hand with locally-based social enterprises in what I am sure will be strong and enduring partnership.” James Butler, Public Affairs Manager, Social Enterprise UK
 
“I am both excited and thrilled to see the progress that has been made to date” says Nick Wright, Head of Community Affairs EMEA at UBS, who supports social enterprise through its Community Affairs programme, “and how by working collaboratively across the sector significant strides are being taken to further develop social enterprises in the Borough of Hackney, enabling them to address societal challenges more broadly.”

Abe Cruz In 14 Ways with Forever Faith

Abe Cruz7 - MercyfulGrace Blog

Abe Cruz: ‘Forever Faith’ – In 14 Ways – http://MercyfulGrace.Blog

Abraham J. Cruz what a pleasure to meet with you in #In14Ways at last. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to get closer to know more about you. We thought this interview would never happen. You are such a busy successful inspiring entrepreneur. If you are not dripped in chocolate (Jay Leno) for your adoring fans, you are dripped in words of inspiration all over your (Forever Faith) brands ..’ So lets get started already in In14Ways ..’

1. How are you today?

I’m Blessed and Great every day, because there is no other option when you see light, and breath air. Amen!!

2. What was life like on millionaire matchmaker when we first saw you

Life at that point was unreal, and unbelievable, because about a year before that I was in prison, and I was told that. I wasn’t going to be able to accomplish anything, or be productive in life. I was in prison being told when to eat and when to sleep.

3. Has Patti changed your life for good with the one in the aftermath

Patti did a great job on working with me, but unfortunately it didn’t work out with the girl I met on the show. She was beautiful, and I hope she is doing well.

Abe Cruz8 - MercyfulGrace Blog.jpg

4. How has prison affected your focus

It was the biggest blessing of my life, because nothing I have today (physically, spiritually, financially, or mentally) would have come about without hitting rock bottom and going to prison. I was forced to lay on my back, so all I could see was up.

5. Advise for young entrepreneurs

To truly follow their heart and soul, and ask God for direction. Truly believe in God first, and believe in yourself second, and with that combination you can’t lose.

6. Your advise for anyone living a life of crime

Yikes..!! Hurry up and figure out your exit strategy, because I don’t think anybody decides they want to go into a life of crime. Speaking for myself I grew up poor, and wanted a better life for me and my family. And ultimately I know I made the wrong decision, but it was the quickest financial solution to all my financial problems. I would never advise to do it. Remember this… Fast Cash Fast Crash..!!

7. How has faith captured your imagination.

I fully believe in myself. I feel that I will be one of the most powerful men in the world some day, for many different reasons.

8. How have you managed to resolve diversity in America being Latino

I understand at time we are dealing with some racial tension, but I personally do not allow racism, or race, to influence or impact my daily life. I don’t have an ounce of hate in my body, except for idiots. And idiots come in all shapes, sizes, and races. Life overall is about loving, accepting, and encouraging each other.

(MercyfulGrace: Laugh – Laugh – Laugh – Love it !!! Genius. Thank you ..’)

9. Do you believe in after life

Wooh… That’s a good question. The majority of people out there would want me to give a definitive answer, because that’s what is expected in society. But me speaking truthfully, never even gave it a thought. My focus is becoming a better person every day, and doing everything I can to help this world in every way I can.

10. Where is home for you

I travel so much. Not sure where home really is…

11. Your ideal get away.

Heading to the beach. Quiet beach. Massage and relaxation all day long… and having sushi. I’m more on the simple side.

12. Who inspires you most

Faith is number one. There’s been a couple of people that triggered some inspiration as well while I was in prison. P.Diddy (Sean John), Jay Cutler (4 time Mr. Olympia), and Jim Rohn (Philosopher).

13. Your greatest legacy will be

That I cared about people. That I lifted up people when they were down.

Abe Cruz - MercyfulGrace Blog

14. Say a prayer for humanity.

Dear Father God, I come to you for the good and the bad, and today’s specific prayer is to bring humanity together. We are going through some tough, confusing times. Us humans don’t have the answers. So I turn to you, and ask You for direction. I ask you Father God to guide us, because we will only see improvement if we put all our faith in You Father God. I pray this to you Father God in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen

End of Interview

Thank you so much for the interview. You are truly a star and a consummate professional. I’ve picked up a few notes here personally. Goes to show. The best things in life are free and what will be will be. Patience is a real glorious virtue. Furthermore, like to add and end on this note: may God bless you real good. Amen !!!

Tyra Sanchez in 14 Ways

Tyra Sanchez – http://MercyfulGrace.blog

We met up with the other Tyra 🙂🤗😍. Need we say more. Slay. Slay. Slay. Still, we are bewildered we pulled this one off. God is awesome. We are truly humbled and blessed. Miracles do happen when you do believe ..’

Tyra is definitely one of our most all time favourite Queens from the Rupaul Drag Race franchise. This is a token of our love and thanks to her for the interview. Superb. We hope you do agree too. She is a world Class Act !!! Nothing but love ..’

We love Tyra Sanchez. Such a Brilliant Gifted Talent. Some Queens are struggling with one look. She’s knocking out 3 in one runway walk with the same outfit. It’s obvious why and where the trawls are from. Hater’s are gonna hate but God said no ..’

It takes one with a strong willed character to understand the genius behind navigating hate.

The Interview:

1. How are you today and to what do we owe this honourable pleasure.


Today I am super good. The sun is shining, my heart is beating and it’s another day to accomplish something more!



2. Who is Tyra Sanchez.


Tyra Sanchez is a fictional character. A figment of my imagination that I brought to life. Tyra is also the second season winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race.  



3. Is she misunderstood.


Tyra Sanchez is beyond misunderstood. People can’t understand her. They can’t label her. Can’t put their finger on it and that’s why they are so intrigued. 


4. Would life be different without her and how.


Life would be different without Tyra because I wouldn’t receive so much hate from online trolls. Also I probably wouldn’t have as much success as I do today. I’d totally miss financial stability and the joys of travel.

5. Is there something Tyra would like to say that she hasnt already said and what.


Bite me. 


6. What moves Tyra.


Hard work, dedication and determination are the things that move Tyra. There’s nothing sexier than a queen that knows what she wants and how to get it.


7. How important is faith and God to you especially on the show and now.


Faith is extremely important. I don’t know how I would’ve made it through all these years without faith. The ability to believe that something greater is out there or that something better is on its way. It’s like going through something and not having any worry at all because you know like you know that The Universe will make a way. 



8. Do you have anymore new dreams and ambitions.


I have tons of dreams and ambitions, however, I’m currently focused on one important dream at the moment. The release of my first musical album. Currently scheduled to be released in spring of 2018, my album speaks to the masses. Every detail, every lyric and every beat comes from my heart. I’ve spent my last summer creating and producing each track all on my own. I’ve put so much of myself into the music that I’m like an open book. But I know that it’s worth it and the fans will truly appreciate it.



9. How would you like to be remembered.


I’d like to be remembered as America’s Sweetheart. The sweetest person that you’ll ever meet, but be careful not to cross her because she can jump from America’s Sweetheart to Miss Bitch in 3.9 seconds.

Tyra Sanchez – More @ Http://MercyfulGrace.blog 

More Tyra https://youtu.be/sld3JFDt7dc


10. Where is home.


My home is not of this earth! I don’t belong here and this place is only temporary. My place is in the heavens, in the kingdom, next to our creator. But for now we’ll settle with Los Angeles, CA. 


11. Favourite & Worst moments on DragRace.


I think my favorite moment of Drag Race is during the bridal challenge. Every competitor formed an alliance and tried to have me removed, but evil never wins and it only led to my triumphant victory.

I think my worst moment was Season 5 reunion. I gave so much focus in helping another queen that I didn’t put any attention into myself. Time flew by and the next thing you know I was rushing to complete my appearance and by the looks of things, it was really terrible.

Tyra Sanchez – http://MercyfulGrace.blog


12. What is love to you.


Love is indescribable. It’s like an ultimate feeling of happiness. Love is me. Love is you. We are love. 


“Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”


13. From one Queen to another – ‘Would you like say something to the Queen of England’.


Not really. No disrespect to the Queen, but I don’t know much about her to send her a message. 


14. If you were to say a prayer to heal the world how would it go.


Dear Lord, Please protect the children, make strong the weak, remove the evil in power and heal the hearts of hatred. May you bless those filled with love. Together may we progress and move forward in life and in love.

Before I blocked your a**

Before I blocked your ass, it’s because, you did the same bullsh*t multiple times, over multiple array of events. 


Now, I am no young fool to be played by your pathology. I’m too grown for that mess. Better luck elsewhere next time. I respect myself too much for your mess. Disrespectable. #MercyfulGrace #Disrespectful #RealTalk


MANIPULATION

#Manipulation of the #mind is what creates #mental illness. Bad #religion and #politics rest at the heart of it. Tear that #dogma away from my #South, #North #East or #West for good. 

Such #foolishness is by no means #Godliness. When you practise the #love that you #preach; then, I’ll #believe you  – Anthony Everest  ..’

You are what you know. If you know hate, you give hate. If you know Love, you give Love !!! So; Beloved. Be Loved ..’

– Anthony Everest 

Some people no matter how much you show them Love* they’ll drag you through their mud in disguises of malicious intended smiles

Just stay clear and keep your Heart* openly wise grounded with faith in the Truth* about Love*. The facts don’t change the truth in Love*.

Racism & White Supremacy:


For as long as you live in fear you will never grow or be ..’ – Anthony Everest

2 Corinthians 11:14 – And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

1 Peter 5:8 – Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Sleepy eyes rosie days; finite price, rise into the dream land where heavy burdens are laid to rest, with new dawn praise, awaiting a sunrise after the moon.
