Haringey Gold – Tam Carrigan

Committed to supporting young people in Haringey

Haringey received the biggest amount of funding in the first round of the Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund (external link) to deliver our Haringey Community Gold scheme to support young people to discover their talent and fulfil their potential. Haringey Community Gold uses a strengths based public health approach to engaging young people and benefits from a network of connected community programmes to listen and respond to young people.

The programme made up of detached youth work and community programmes allows young people to find local provisions which range from sports, training and employment, future leaders programme, mental health support and a BAME careers service.

The three-year funded programme’s outreach workers are already working closely with schools, youth clubs, and the voluntary sector.

Young people can choose which programmes they are interested in to create a bespoke experience for themselves. We want to support you to stay on track, take the opportunities you want, develop relationships and leadership skills and have good mental health and wellbeing.

Who are the ten Haringey Community Gold partners?
