Hope in Tottenham

Hope in Tottenham is a community based local charity that has been established to serve the needs of children and young adults in the London Borough of Haringey.

“Faith based, but not faith biased”, Hope in Tottenham represents a unique local initiative that enables the very wide range of connections within the area to be built into a network of support for local people and communities. The aims are multi-faceted, from the support provided to primary aged children in Haringey schools through a professionally run counselling service, to a mentoring scheme being implemented in co-operation with the College of North East London (CONEL).

Hope in Tottenham reaches into communities that in the past have sometimes generated negative headlines and working with them, seeks to put in place appropriate and dynamic programmes that are appropriate for the environment in which they are based. In the past, sometimes community initiatives were started by groups and organisations that weren’t based in the area; Hope in Tottenham is entirely locally based, managed and organised by staff and volunteers from the area with the Director John Wood MBE. This strengthens the credibility of the organisation and enables those partners with whom we work to build long term relationships that can lead to real change on the ground.
