New Community Assistance Centre launches in Tottenham

We should like to inform any Haringey residents affected by recent disturbances that a new Community Assistance Centre has been set up by Haringey Council at Tottenham Green Leisure Centre.

Open from today (Tuesday, August 9), the new centre will help local people with a wide range of issues - from emergency housing for residents whose homes were damaged by the disturbances to advice from a team of social workers.

Other support available will come from the Police and voluntary groups - and there will be advice on topics such as insurance claims and legal problems.

The centre will also act as a focal point for the many offers of donations which have been made by both businesses such as the Club and individuals in the community.

The Club is committed to supporting the local authority and the community in dealing with the aftermath of these events and will be supporting the work of this centre.

Council Leader Claire Kober said: "Over the past few days, we’ve had many generous offers of support from local people and firms – while many of our own staff have been working around the clock to help find alternative accommodation for families.

“The new support centre will be somewhere where all of this help will come together under one roof.”

Whether people need help or advice - or would like to make a donation - the number to call is 020 8489 5308.
