Join HCD and become a member of the global Co-operative movement

Hackney Co-operative Developments Community Interest Company is a not-for-profit organisation.

We have members, not shareholders.

Membership is open to anyone in Hackney who shares our goals, ethos and approach to community led economic regeneration. 

Being a Community Interest Company (CIC) means that our property portfolio is a protected Hackney community asset. It cannot be broken up for private gain but will be preserved to support local economic activity.

Every penny we make goes to improving life for the community in Hackney. 

We invite all who share HCD’s purpose of community economic development to apply to join. As an HCD member, you will help develop enterprises that contribute to the building of a sustainable society, with fair access to opportunities for all. You will be kept informed about our annual general meetings, public activities and services, developments in the co-operative movement, the local community sector and the local area, through member-only email newsletters and HCD’s website. You will be able to vote and stand in the annual election for General Council members, who are the company’s voluntary Board of Directors. The board, to which HCD’s paid staff are accountable, meets every quarter.
