Hackney Connect is a programme aimed at supporting young people aged 18-30 who want to create a real difference in Hackney. Hackney Connect, which is funded by UBS, has funded 46 social entrepreneurs. The Awards, available between £5K-£15K are aimed to get young people started and create the positive change needed in our community. To supplement the funding, each Award Winner receives 12 months support from an UnLtd Award Manager, access to workshops, events and several engagement opportunities. Each Award Winner also has support from UBS staff throughout their 12 month journey. The current award programme is closed, however you can still get involved and receive support by attending one of our events, webinars or accessing our knowledge platform which will be launched in April 2016.
