Why sign up to the Tottenham Charter

Connecting our young people, residents and local community to a variety of opportunities in Tottenham and beyond, available through investment and business, is key.

We are eager to work with partners and businesses that share our values - that see investment in Tottenham as going far beyond new buildings. Investment that supports and improves the lives of our local community whilst building confidence and resilience for the future.

All residents should feel empowered to access and take advantage of the opportunities that investment into our local area will bring. Creating a stronger and more connected local community in Tottenham is crucial to making sure that positive change in Tottenham is inclusive and sustainable.

In response to requests from local schools and educational institutions, many of the pledges received so far have focussed on helping young people by offering valuable work experience and curriculum enrichment support activities.

But there are many other ways you can provide support.
