What we do
Haringey Circle is a local, independent membership-based programme open to Haringey residents over 50 and those with learning disabilities who are over 18. We provide activities and events to help our members to connect, get active, keep learning, and to stay independent.
We aim to increase social connections, reduce isolation and loneliness and improve the wellbeing and self-esteem. Based around a varied social calendar developed by members and volunteers, our membership programme helps to grow diverse friendship groups that offer practical and emotional support.
We recognise and celebrate the diverse skills and experiences that our members have to offer and support them to develop peer support activities, hold community events and deliver training and workshops that address the priorities of people in their locality and enable the sharing of skills.
The service also includes a competitively priced ‘At Home’ offer for those who need additional support in and around the home, enabling both members to access handy people, gardeners and our ‘Home help’ domestic support team.
Haringey Circle is a Social Enterprise set up as a Community Interest Company (CIC).
