Community organisations join forces to help stop the rise of COVID-19 in Haringey

With a new lockdown in place, groups and organisations across Haringey have come together under the banner of ‘Community Protect’ to strengthen local messages about COVID-19 and to help slow the rise of coronavirus in the borough.

This is the first time that so many groups and organisations in Haringey have joined forces to work together with a united voice, sharing essential public health messaging at a time when it is most needed.

Rachel Hughes, Chair of the Bridge Renewal Trust, said: “To face up to tough times we must work together in partnerships to help keep people in Haringey safe and well. This alliance will help us reach out to everyone across our borough with the vital health messages to keep each other and our most vulnerable communities protected from Covid-19.”

Using their combined resources, and with financial support from Public Health in Haringey, the alliance of community groups and organisations is reaching out across all sections of Haringey’s diverse communities, ensuring that the right information gets to those most hard to reach, to help reduce health inequalities, build stronger communities and improve the quality of life of the people of Haringey.

Sharon Grant OBE, Chair of Public Voice, said: “In Haringey we have always been proud of the way in which our many communities protect and support each other through difficult times, and the COVID 19 crisis is no exception. We’re determined to make sure that whoever you are, you know how to protect yourself and your family from this dreadful virus.”

With simple reminders about the actions we must all take to keep on protecting each other –washing hands, covering face and making space, as well as getting a test and self-isolating when necessary – the Community Protect alliance is sharing clear messages through printed media, online, through the press, in neighbourhoods and face-to-face where possible, to ensure that we are all doing the right things to protect ourselves, our communities, and our loved ones,

David Pascall CBE, Chair of Trustees, Mind in Haringey, said: “Mind in Haringey is proud to be working with Bridge Renewal Trust and Public Voice in delivery of ‘Community Protect’ ensuring all of our communities stay safe and well!”

Join us on Thursday 30th May for Music Under One Sun with Ulisses Bezzerra

Music Under One Sun is a monthly initiative that aims bringing people together to share the joy of music. Music is not just to be played on a stage.

Music is the celebration of life and needs to be accessed by all. This is a respectful space for music lovers, whether you are professional or not, it doesn’t matter. Just bring your instrument if you’ve got one, or just come along and be open to engage in a musical journey with other people who as you, are keen to listen, learn, enjoy and celebrate.

Amazing fresh food is served with love by Leyla and her team at Living Under One Sun Community Hub & Cafe (Tottenham Cafe Connect) which we encourage you to have, to support this unique venue and team. Any questions please contact Leyla on info@livingunderonesun.co.uk or Api on apilarre@gmail.com.

Location: Living Under One Sun Community Hub & Cafe, inside Down Lane Park, Park View Road, Tottenham N17 9EX.

Tottenham Cafe Connect now called Living Under One Sun Community Cafe & Hub

A welcoming, multi-purpose Community Hub and Cafe for Tottenham

After much support from volunteers, businesses and the local community, an old disused bowling club has been transformed into a vibrant community cafe and growing space. A place to meet neighbours, share skills and ideas, make new friends, have fun, be fit, grow food, show case talents, perform in our festivals and events.

With the help of volunteers we will continue to transform the space with a beautiful community garden. Our new website is under development.  Keep an eye on www.livingunderonesun.co.uk for updates on the website and what’s happening at the community hub.

Everyone is welcome. We can all contribute in different ways, bringing the positive changes we want to see in our neighbourhoods.
If you are interested in hiring facilities at the Community Cafe & Hub for a private or community event, please contact info@livingunderonesun.co.uk.

Our Spacehive Campaign Reached its Goal!

Great News! Thanks to the support of the people of the community, of the local and national businesses who pledged, and to the help of the Mayor of London fund, we finally managed to achieve our crowdfunding goal. Tottenham’s Cafe Connect will be a reality!

Our Crowdfunding campaign on Spacehive, which started on 15th of June, has reached the £44000 goal two weeks before deadline. We are already at work to deliver the project in the quickest and best way as possible, to give to the Tottenham community an amazing hub and cafe for all its people and from everybody else.

We will update you on this website, as well as on Living Under One Sun and HAIL pages and social media, about the delivery of the project. We are so happy to have received all this support and we can’t wait to use all our energies and resources to create a welcoming, inclusive, inspiring, natural space for the community to meet, share skills, stories, ideas and become a community even more. Well done Tottenham! You deserve it
