How to help Abney

Since 2015, Abney Park has been managed by Hackney Council.

The Abney Park Trust, a charitable trust and limited company, managed the site previously under a lease from the council. The Trust now runs events and activities on site and collaborates with Hackney Council on current management and formulating future plans for the site.

We get core funding from the London Borough of Hackney but also need to raise extra funding to cover our basic costs as well as for special projects and events.

The Trust is overseen by a board of trustee-directors.

We are always looking for new people to volunteer and potentially become trustee-directors. Please email for more information.
