A Hope Hack is a day-long workshop that aims to give young people a voice and focuses on their hopes for the future. This involves groups discussing their thoughts and solutions on issues that affect them, their lives and their communities.

Over the last two years, the Hope Collective have been running a series of Hope Hack events across the length and breadth of the UK. The Hope Collective formed to support the campaign for Damilola Taylor, a 10-year-old boy who wrote of his hope to change the world, shortly before his untimely death in 2000. Hope Hack events honour his memory by dedicating the campaign to young people and their aspirational stories of ambition and hope. The Hope Collective aim to establish real change that enables the UK’s most vulnerable communities to be free from poverty, violence and discrimination.
