Hackney Captians - Hackney Ark's Youth Council

Hackney Ark - Youth Council known as Hackney Captains  is a group for young people with additional needs set up to give feedback about Hackney Ark health services available at Hackney Ark  including:

Being a Hackney Captain can really make a difference to how Hackney Ark  services will work with young people. 


"We enjoyed our last meeting and are looking forward to hearing what our members have to say next. We’d love to see some new faces!"


What we do...

Hackney Captains help us understand how to change things for the better by giving feedback. There are lots of exciting things that we want help with; including some flyer designs, improving the waiting areas and the opportunity to become judges on a funding panel.

There will be  free pizza AND opportunities to make the Hackney Ark better for young people!

Taking part in Hackney Ark’s Youth Council is a great way of adding experience to your CV.


Who is it for?

Hackney Ark - Youth Council - Hackney Captains  is open to any young person aged 13-19 who is or has been known to any Hackney Ark service.

We can’t provide 1:1 support but the venue is accessible and we will have a Speech and Language Therapist present for young people who may benefit from this support on the day.
