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.

Tell us what you think

What does “fairness” mean to you? What could a “more equal Haringey” look like? If you could change one thing to make the borough a fairer place what would it be? Head to our pop up stall and tell us your views.

We need you!

We are looking for people from all parts of Haringey and all walks of life to take part in our second public event, sharing their ideas of how inequality can be reduced and building a shared vision for a fairer borough. Come along, share your experiences and ideas and together we can make Haringey a place where everyone can thrive.

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.
