Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
Do you know a LGBTQI+ person who’s in need of assistance throughout the pandemic?
Local charity, WISE Thoughts is now offering a food and essentials parcel service for LGBTQI+ community members without access to resources. The service is funded by support from City Bridge Trust and The National Lottery Community Fund.
Applicants need to provide their details in this ‘new user registration form’. Please ensure that you answer each question, including those that are marked as not mandatory.
In order to qualify for the service, applicants must be:
• LGBTQI+ individuals
• not in receipt of financial support from other sources, i.e. unemployed
• have limited access to financial resources, i.e. self-employed, retired or not currently working.
At present, successful applicants will receive a single parcel of food and essential items delivered to the address of their choice.
If you have any further questions about the scheme, email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
All play areas and outdoor gyms are now open in Haringey parks.
They had been closed due to coronavirus, but following a programme of cleaning, new signage, risk assessments and the removal of miles of temporary fencing that had been erected, they are now available to use again.
Please continue to use all of our facilities responsibly to help prevent a second wave of coronavirus.
- Please do not use if you feel ill or are self-isolating
- Please do sanitise your hands regularly whilst using the equipment and remember to wash your hands as soon as you are able to do so after use
- Stay a safe distance from others
- Do not eat or drink within the facilities
- If the facility is busy, wait patiently until you can use it safely, or come back when less busy

The Prime Minister made a new statement today announcing that some “higher risk settings” that were due to open tomorrow will no longer do so.
He said that until 15 August at the earliest:
- Casinos, bowling alleys, skating rinks and remaining close contact services must remain closed;
- Indoor performances will not resume;
- Pilots of larger crowds in sports venues and conference centres will not take place; and
- Wedding receptions of up to 30 people will not be permitted, but ceremonies can continue to take place, in line with COVID-Secure guidelines.
In addition, the government will extend the requirement to wear a face covering to other indoor settings such as museums, galleries, cinemas and places of worship. This will become enforceable in law from 8 August.
The national pause on shielding will continue as planned from tomorrow. At this stage, the government is not changing the rules on social contact nationally.
