Since 1988, Hackney Quest has been supporting young people and families in the local community. This has only been possible with the ongoing commitment of an amazing and diverse group of people. As well as the staff team, we benefit from the invaluable support of a diverse range of volunteers: youth workers, facilitators, trustees, family support, community, employment and mentors.
