On the 20th of October, Hackney Community Transport (HCT) became one of the first holders of the new Pioneering Social Enterprise mark! The new Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville presented this awarded at an event hosted by the programmes sponsor, UBS in their brand new London offices.

The Pioneering Social Enterprise in Hackney Mark recognises and promotes genuine social enterprises that demonstrate community ownership and are based in the London Borough of Hackney. This award recognises and rewards organisations which are committed to genuine social enterprise principles, seeking to safeguard the integrity of the term ‘Social Enterprise’ locally.


As a Mark holder, we will be featured on the Hackney Co-operative Development website ensuring our clients and collaborators can recognise our social credentials and that we are highly valued members within our local social economy.

This award recognises the collaborative efforts from all our members of staff and is a valuable indicator that we are on the right track as a social enterprise, creating a positive social impact in on our local community.
