In March 2017, Haringey Council was successful in its bid for funding from the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and was awarded £2.371m of funding. Broadwater Farm is one of the Tottenham estates that will benefit from this.
The funding will enable us to work with Broadwater Farm residents and other stakeholders to deliver improvements during the next three years. The fund will be spent on improving social and economic opportunities for residents, including helping people access jobs.
We will also be supporting local groups to develop their proposals and bid for funding for projects that could make a real difference in Broadwater Farm. Once plans have been drawn up, all residents will be invited to take part in a Community Voting Day where you’ll be able to find out more about the different proposals and vote for which projects you think should be delivered. The Voting Day will take place in Summer 2018.
Your dedicated Engagement Officer
Broadwater Farm now has a dedicated Community Engagement Officer Genstacia Bull. She will be working directly with residents to identify priorities for their estate.
“I am Genstacia Bull and I am your new dedicated Community Engagement Officer. I have been working in community engagement for over eight years. I am looking forward to meeting you and finding out more about life on the Farm.
Outside of work, I like to volunteer my services for different charities. I have volunteered for Beanstalk as a reading helper to children between 10 and 11 years old. I have raised money and volunteered my services over the Christmas holidays for Crisis, a homeless charity. My latest volunteering service was getting involved in packing Christmas boxes in conjunction with Samaritans for children in Eastern Europe.
