Haringey Fairness Commission

Get involved

We need your help

Fairness Commission event NovemberThe Commission will only be able to make effective recommendations if we hear from residents, voluntary groups, businesses and experts. Without your help we will be unable to make the recommendations that will actually make a difference to peoples' lives.

We would like to hear your thoughts on what fairness means to you, what you think the Commission should be looking at, and about your own experiences of living in poverty or facing inequality.

Hold your own fairness conversation

Do you have friends or neighbours who are interested in fairness? Are you part of a local community group which has something to say about inequality in Haringey? Do you want to be part of the conversation about how we make Haringey fairer? Why not hold your own conversation as part of the Haringey Fairness Commission!

We would like any residents who would like to participate in the Commission in this way to hold conversations about fairness, lasting anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours. We invite groups to discuss the issues that matter to them, focusing on three broad questions: 

  1. What have been your experiences of inequality and unfairness in Haringey?
  2. What do you think should be done to make Haringey a more equal and fairer place?
  3. Of the topics you’ve discussed, what three issues do the group think the Haringey Fairness Commission should focus on when making recommendations?

We have created a discussion toolkit to help you run the conversation. This sets out ideas on the questions and topics you might want to consider, tips for keeping the conversation going, and the tools to advertise your discussion group. You can download the relevant parts of the toolkit below. Alternatively, if you need these in a different format please let us know by email, fairness@haringey.gov.uk or by post to Haringey Fairness Commission, c/o the Policy Team, Haringey Council, River Park House, 225 High Road, London N22 8HQ.

Please send us a summary of your discussion by 15 March 2019.

Schools toolkit - for children and young people

The Fairness Commission wants to hear from children and young people. We are inviting primary and secondary schools and colleges across Haringey to download our Schools Toolkit, which can be used by schools to guide classroom-based activities with pupils, to stimulate discussions on the topic of fairness and inequality. 

The Schools Toolkit contains a separate activity pack for primary and secondary school students, with a range of activities and a conversation guide to help students explore the topic at the right level for them. We have also created a teachers’ support pack, which provides teachers with background on the Commission, additional guidance on potential activities, and tips on how to get the most out of class conversations about fairness and inequality. Finally, we have included a feedback form, to help you report back to the Commission about what students have said.

If you would like a Commissioner or Officer to come along to your discussion, please also let us know. While we will not be able to attend all groups, we will try to get someone to come along to hear directly from your students if we can. 

Each part of the toolkit can be downloaded below. Alternatively, if you need them in a different format please let us know by email, fairness@haringey.gov.uk, or by post to Haringey Fairness Commission, c/o the Policy Team, Haringey Council, River Park House, 225 High Road, Wood Green, N22 8HQ.

Please send us a summary of your discussion by 15 March 2019.
