Welcome to Information Station, Haringey's new community news project created as part of our response to COVID-19. If you care about getting through COVID-19 together, then this is the place for you.
Information Station is run by a group of citizen journalists. They are people who live or work in Haringey who give their time to report news stories and share the COVID-19 and lockdown experience of communities in the borough
They work together to:
make sure Haringey people have a voice
share local information on all things COVID-19 and lockdown
challenge myths and fake news
start informed debate about issues that matter to local people
To get to know my local community and its concerns/ struggles and to get involved by providing the population of Haringey with local information and get to know all the local groups and initiatives.
To share and exchange ideas and to create a forward looking network.
To enhance and develop writing and journalistic skills so that I can find my writing voice. To gain confidence and technical skills as a writer/journalist. How to approach more sensitive topics. How to write objectively.
To expand communication skills including visual ones such as making short films and documentaries
