We know there will be a period of transition as we adjust to our ‘new normal’ now that schools and colleges across the UK have closed.
For those who need it during this difficult time, Kooth.com provides free, online mental health and wellbeing support to 11-18-year olds, and up to 25 years for those with additional needs.

Haringey and Veolia are working hard together to ensure that a range of waste collection services continue to be provided across the borough.
As is now the case across our society, coronavirus has had an impact within our workforce. Our staff are essential key workers and are doing their best, so please bear with us in these uniquely challenging times.
With many people now having to limit the amount of travelling they do and stay at home, we are seeing more waste produced at the kerbside and this is increasing pressure on waste services.
You may, as a result, experience some disruption or delay to our collections but we will keep these to a minimum.
If your household waste, recycling or garden waste isn’t collected on the usual day, bear with us as we will aim to collect within 48 hours. We may be running slightly behind so there is no need to report it.
You can help to reduce the amount of waste you produce by:
- Reusing and recycling where you can - and ensuring that recycling is clean and dry
- Using your bins correctly, as well as squashing containers and flattening boxes
- Ensuring all rubbish bags are securely tied to help prevent spills and protect our collection teams and the public
- Not putting tissues in the recycling
If you are self-isolating, please also ensure you stick to the Government's 'Stay at home' advice, which states you should:
- Store personal waste – such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths – securely within disposable rubbish bags
- Place these bags into another bag, tie it securely and keep it separate from other waste
- These bags should be put aside for at least three days before being put in your usual external general waste bin
- Not take this, or any waste, to your local Waste and Recycling Centre - it is now closed
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
The Mall Wood Green car park will be accessible free of charge until further notice in order to support key workers and those who need to use their cars to access essential services.
There will be no need to use the pay machines – a measure that reduces possible exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), while also helping to reduce some of the financial burden on key workers and guests during this difficult time.
In line with the Government’s advice and guidance, the centre itself remains open for business to the local community here in Haringey and visitors from the surrounding boroughs.
