All Haringey’s green spaces need proper funding

Continuous Government cuts to all Councils’ budgets is a key problem leading to chronic understaffing and lack of resources for vital public services in general, and for so-called ‘non-statutory’ services (like parks) in particular.

 

The Haringey Friends of Parks Forum is the local umbrella body for all Haringey’s 60+ local greenspace Friends Groups. It lobbies for adequate resources for all green spaces and for good collaboration between the groups and Parks Service staff.  Read more detail here:
