Priority 3; Clean and Safe – by 2018.

“Residents feel safer and have even more pride and respect for where they live.”

“With more jobs and opportunities for our residents, the gap between Haringey’s income levels and the rest of London’s has closed, and we have reduced our carbon emissions to improve the environment.”

Priority 5; Housing transformation – by 2018

“Haringey has more homes and stronger communities where people want to live.”

On her attendance Jenny Holloway commented “I am extremely proud to be part of Haringey’s regeneration!  This is just what we are doing here at Fashion Enter.  Upskilling people to use industrial machines, cutting fabric, pressing… all the skills you need to either get a job immediately or start your own label.  There is a whole world out there so make sure you grab it!”
