Haringey Together has been chosen as a finalist for The Innovation in Politics Awards 2020 (external link), in the category ‘Coping with Covid-19’. Haringey Together focuses on bringing the community together to support one another during the Covid-19 pandemic and provides help and support for the local community, as well as information about how residents can volunteer.

Renters across Haringey and the rest of the country will be protected during the current national restrictions and will not face any bailiff enforcement action.
Measures have been put in place to pause any evictions starting in December and they will not be enforced until 11 January 2021 at the earliest.
This move will help to support individuals and families who are experiencing financial difficulties through no fault of their own.
The only exception to the above will be cases where tenants have shown anti-social behaviour or are the perpetrator of domestic abuse in social housing. The landlord would then be allowed to re-let the property to another tenant.
The new measures add to the previous protections that were announced during the first lockdown including six-month notice periods that ensures renters can stay in their homes until May 2021 with time to find other support or accommodation.
Courts will remain open through the new national restrictions. Court rules and procedures introduced in September will ensure protections for both tenants and landlords. For more information please visit the council website or information can also be found on the government website.
You can now make informal childcare arrangements for children aged 13 or under with family and friends you do not live with after the Government published guidance on ‘childcare bubbles.’ (external link).
One household can now link with one other to provide informal (IE: unpaid and unregistered) childcare to a child, or children, aged 13 or under.
The childcare can be provided in either, or both, of the two households and – where necessary – in any location: indoors or outdoors, public or private.
You therefore can only get informal help with childcare from family and friends if they:
- Live with you
- Are part of your childcare bubble
- Are part of your support bubble (external link)
For further information on childcare bubbles if your child lives in more than one location; if you lived in a ‘high’ or ‘very high’ local COVID alert level before the Government’s tighter national restrictions; if you’re in a support bubble and if you’re clinically extremely vulnerable, see the guidance on the Government website (external link).
