What is the Tottenham Charter?

The aim of the Tottenham Charter is to bring together key partners and deliver beneficial pledges. These pledges will support our aim to provide local residents with skills and experiences that will enable them to make the most of their own opportunity and ambition.

We want to:

Inspire

Local young people through offering more world of work experiences, paid internships, apprenticeships and employment opportunities.

Support

Local people and businesses by offering access to employment, skills and training opportunities and creating opportunities for local business.

Build

The capacity of local community and voluntary sector groups by offering pro bono support, free use of event spaces and generating volunteering opportunities.

Why should partners sign up to the Charter?

We want Tottenham to become an area where its people and communities are confident, resilient and able to shape the factors that affect their local environment, family and social circumstances.

All groups of residents should feel empowered to access and take advantage of the new social and economic opportunities that Tottenham’s regeneration will bring.

Creating a stronger and more connected local community in Tottenham is critical to making sure that positive change in Tottenham is inclusive and sustainable.
