  • Objective 2: Help residents to become better qualified and raise educational aspirations.
  • Objective 3: Promote health and wellbeing for all, and support independent living.
  • Objective 4: Make the borough safer, and help people to feel safe in Hackney.
  • Objective 5: Promote mixed communities in well-designed neighbourhoods, where people can access high quality, affordable housing.
  • Objective 6: Be a sustainable community, where all citizens take pride in and take care of Hackney and its environment, for future generations.
