Enabling young people to get the best out of life

Watch this film to find out more about our Children's Community programme

The Pembury Children's Community aims to improve the lives of the 1,000 children and young people and their families living on and around the Pembury estate in Hackney.

Pembury residents have this vision for their estate by 2025:

  • A neighbourhood where people are proud to live
  • A community where people from all backgrounds come together, where everyone matters and there are opportunities for all
  • A place where young people are encouraged, inspired and empowered to get the best out of life

What have we achieved so far?

The Children’s Community started in 2015 and is led by Peabody and Hackney Council. Here's a summary of what we've achieved so far. Please note that the Children's Community is being evaluated by Sheffield Hallam University – you can read their Year 1 summary evaluation report here.
