Priority 5 - Your Council

The way the council works

We are ambitious for the borough and our residents. To deliver our goals we must be equally ambitious for the way the council works. The way we engage with our residents, businesses and partners, the quality of our workforce and the way we serve our customers are fundamental to enabling us to achieve the overall aims of the Borough Plan.

To deliver our demanding agenda in a challenging environment, with limited resources, we must become an exemplary modern council. In order to do so we will seek to ensure that the work we do is efficient, astute and based on evidence; that it is focused on and responsive to our customers, residents and businesses; and that we employ, inspire and cultivate an engaged and committed workforce. Fundamentally, we will be tenacious in our pursuit of organisational excellence.

We are committed to achieving the following outcomes:

  • A council that engages effectively with its residents and businesses
  • Residents get the right information and advice first time and find it easy to interact digitally
  • We will be an able, positive workforce with the skills needed to deliver for Haringey
  • We will be a council that uses its resources in a sustainable way to prioritise the needs of the most vulnerable residents
