Why the Haringey Deal

Haringey Deal - Doing things together logoHaringey is the world in one borough. A place of creativity, personality, radicalism, diversity and community.

Haringey’s people are a huge asset; with knowledge, expertise and passion. With all the challenges we face locally and globally, we know that we need to tap into those strengths.

We have heard what you have been saying to us. That many of you do not feel you have as much influence on decisions as you would like. That we don’t understand what really matters most to you.

That we don’t always seem as open to listening as we should be. That we don’t always learn from our mistakes.  

We want to do better

There are some big challenges ahead – tackling the climate emergency, supporting residents through the cost-of-living crisis, dealing with the long-term impacts of the pandemic on resident’s health and well-being; and striving to reduce the unacceptable inequalities in our borough, ensuring every resident can live a secure, healthy, and fulfilling life.

If we are to achieve our aspirations for a fairer, greener borough that works for everyone, we will need to work with you to make change happen. 

To do this, we need to change the way we work –listening better, sharing power, drawing on your passion and expertise.

The Haringey Deal sets out what we think that new way of working will be. If we get this right, we will truly be able to build a better future for Haringey, together.
