Business Support

High quality, professional business advice

Hackney Co-operative Developments was formed in 1979 to assist people into co-operative enterprise and this remains a primary focus of our organisation. We lead the way for business growth and economic regeneration in our locality, supporting co-operatives, social enterprises, and locally-owned businesses through consultancy, training, incubation, and providing suitable premises to grow businesses.

HCD has extensive experience in delivering support to co-operatives, social and community enterprises, through funded schemes such as our Social Enterprise in Hackney Programme programme and through directly paid for services.

We offer support in all areas of business development including planning, governance, finance, environmental sustainability, fundraising, legal advice, marketing, property management, investment readiness, decision-making, and social return on investment.

With decades of experience working with local authorities, government agencies and community sector organisations to deliver development and regeneration projects, we have seen a positive change in the economic development and urban landscape of Dalston, Hackney.
