Solution

Haringey Giving is a new partnership of residents, community groups, businesses, City firms, funders and other stakeholders, put in place after 2+ years of community consultation and engagement. ‘Everyone has something to give, and we all can play a part’ We will enable residents and communities to build on their strengths, adding value and harnessing time, talents and resources. We will give grants to enable people to make improvements and take action on the things that matter to them.
