YRS Hackney

COFRA Foundation logoYRS is piloting a Hyperlocal project in Hackney. The idea is to build a network of young coders, local businesses, schools and Hackney Council supporting each other to provide digital solutions to local issues.

With a grant from the COFRA Foundation, the support of Shoreditch Works and help from staff at Hackney Council we are going to be running several events over the autumn and you are all invited.
