Give local to support Haringey's community organisations this Christmas. Their services are needed this year more than ever

Haringey Giving will be supporting community projects providing much needed services to residents in the coming months. Our borough has a large number of vulnerable and economically disadvantaged residents. Haringey Giving is uniquely placed to co-ordinate and channel fundraising within our community. We’re working closely with the Council, funders, local charities and community volunteering groups, to ensure the rapid delivery of food and other essential items and services to those most need during the pandemic.

Here are a few words from actor, Peter Capaldi:

We know that COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on many parts of our Haringey community

  • Tottenham has one of the highest rates of furloughed staff in the UK
  • Over a third of all jobs in Haringey are estimated to be at risk
  • The number of Universal Credit claimants has more than doubled
  • There has been a huge impact on many people's mental health and wellbeing
  • Many people are experiencing isolation and digital exclusion, making it difficult to access much needed support
  • Children whose education has been disrupted and who are living in overcrowded housing have had additional barriers to learning. Haringey includes some of the most overcrowded constituencies in the UK.

Here are just a few of the vital community porjects we have been able to fund so far.

Our Haringey COVID-19 Appeal has already raised over £200,000 and has funded 49 vital community projects. We have the organisation and processes in place to ensure these funds are rapidly deployed and have the maximum impact at a local level. All our activities are co-ordinated with government funded schemes to avoid duplication of effort.

Many people from across our communities are in need of urgent support. That’s why we are calling on business leaders in the community to ask for their support.
