“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.

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.

“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

 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

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.

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.”

Beloved. Be loved

Anthony Everest – MercyfulGrace.blog

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

When God made you, he took no advice from your enemies ..’ So, they can plot & hate you, till kingdom come, they have no control over your makings! God has the final say. Mercyfulgrace.

#ThedevilIsALiar! Take your BS some where else, don’t leave it at my door. Don’t be upset, when I tell you like it is! They just are. Convictions and confidence are not polite or rude.

My life is too real for jokers, haters & cunning people with selfish abusive agenda’s. Jesus is my boss! Through his grace, I share love, light, truth, and harmony! 

As a creative person, I will not sit around and watch other creative people systematically stifle other creative people. 

Anthony Everest – MercyfulGrace.blog

Creativity is love and should lovingly unite folks not divide folks. 

The love of God Set Me Free. Let No Demons Tell Lies On Me. 

And I advocate, for every creative, regardless of their walk of life – colour, creed or religion. 

Anthony Everest – MercyfulGrace.blog

Release your enemies and haters or they infest your head with a lie-full nest. The Devil Is A Liar! I rebuke you in the name of Jesus!

The KKK: Ignorance

​If you think people who are right look right all the time you would miss the point #looking right all the time ..’ 

– Anthony Everest


#Racism is just pure #ignorance like the #KKK justifies it’s #antics with the #bible, ‘Love Your #Neighbour As Yourself’. How can self #hate #love? 

But then again. Who wrote the bible is another great question. Cuz God existed and was, doing great things before the bible. 

There were sun and stars and humans before the bible and they co-existed in harmony. And when there was war – it was not because of religion; as prevalent, now – soiled with power mongering incessant hate.

They think love looks like a boy a girl. Wrong or right. Love does not care If you are Jew or Greek. Black or white. That’s love. Not White Supremacy

They showed up with #guns, #sticks and #torches. And #they all #went #home #alive. For those Who keep #asking, that's #WhitePrivilege ..' – Valerie Cavar Miller #MercyfulGrace #positivequotes #positive #lifequotes #ValerieCavarMiller

A gaslighting; malignant, narcissist sociopath – does not fool me darling. There’s good and bad in everyone. They call it freewill but I choose love ..’

Some tired souls like to dim other peoples light thinking theirs will shine brighter. It does not work like that ..’

Censoring God in the West ..’

We live in the UK, a christain country, where the Queen is the head of the Church of England; yet we can’t freely speak about God without fear of censorships, but an atheist, can talk about their unbelief, in God without impunity. 

Multiculturalism has not always been positive in my books. It’s left a few questions unanswered and unattended to.

In fact; we could see a power shift in favour of who knows what might happen long enough if this yields more unrests and a vacuum.

No one can blame one person for evil. But we can blame a collectiveness of people who do nothing about it ..’ 
God made us to appreciate one another. Would it not be great if every nation traded with one another in blissful harmony lovingly !!!

A hungry desperation is a cold realization. A players way to be played away senselessly.

When people are shunning you publicly, don’t give them your time privately !!! Those people are social climbers and have no real edifying value to bring into your beautiful life full of loves ..’

Happy summer …'

You should worry about the whores in you choirs, than who I’m socialising with ..’ God is my core. Love is my storage. The fervent rescue. Ever true. Love eternal. God is Love darling. And, he is everywhere.
