Inside Hackney publications

Who we are
Inside Hackney Ltd is a community publisher celebrating and supporting the people of Hackney, as well as small, local and independent businesses and projects across the borough. We also promote and undertake volunteering activities, believing that this engagement benefits the mental and emotional well-being of volunteers, as well building a stronger, more cohesive community.

Publishing projects
Inside Hackney was the first ever guidebook to the borough. The first edition of this free community guide was published in 2015, with thousands of copies distributed all over Hackney. The second edition published in May 2017.

Eat Hackney is our guide to local restaurants, bars and community food projects. The Eat Hackney Cookbook has raised £10,000 for North London Action for the Homeless and Hackney Migrant Centre.

We wrote, photographed and designed annual reports for North London Action for the Homeless and Hackney Migrant Centre.

Volunteer projects
We use our photography and writing skills to benefit local projects – we’ve worked with Bags of Taste, North London Action for the Homeless, East London Food Access, the Parkholme Supper Club and other not-for-profit organisations across the borough.

We also volunteer at organisations such as North London Action for the Homeless and Hackney Pirates.
