What we do
Haringey Circle is a local, independent membership-based programme open to anyone over the age of 50 in Haringey. We provide activities and events to help over 50s in Haringey to connect, get active, keep learning, and to stay independent.
Based around a varied social calendar developed by members and volunteers, our aim is to help local people over 50 to build friendship groups that offer practical and emotional support.
We help to increase social connections and improve wellbeing and self-esteem.
We recognise and celebrate the skills and experiences older people have to offer. We help and support local people over 50 to use these skills to develop activities and hold community events in their neighbourhoods, or anywhere in Haringey.
Haringey Circle is a Social Enterprise set up as a Community Interest Company (CIC).
