Our priorities We have identified our priorities on the basis of local insight and recent data from residents, communities and public sector agencies operating across Haringey: Priority 1: Children and young people with reference to community safety, knife and gun crime Priority 2: Mental health including people experiencing social isolation Priority 3: Skills and enterprise with reference to people living in Haringey who are refugees or from migrant communities Our grants Haringey Giving has secured initial funding to distribute as grants against each of our priorities under two programmes: Changing Lives - micro-grants of £10 to £500 which enable people to take a step or make a change or transition that will improve their quality of life or life chances. Together We Can - small grants of £500 to £10,000 for up to two years, enabling people to work together in informal groups who may find it difficult to access mainstream funding. The Together We Can grant programme was adapted to support the initial community responses to the COVID-19 crisis.
