This programme is exclusively for residents of the Borough of Haringey

Frustrated by a social, environmental or community problem in Haringey that needs a solution? Committed to doing something about it? We’re looking for passionate people who live in Haringey, who have set up a project or organisation that helps their community for the better.

Future Communities Start Up Programme, funded by Linklaters, will help your existing (less that three years old) or new start up, project or organisation with social impact, through an entrepreneurial support programme, peer network, and mentor.

  • Mentoring from Linklaters acting as a bridge between finishing the pre-start up programme and accessing other forms of support from SSE

Our commitment to diversity, inclusion and accessibility

We recognise that discrimination of all sorts infiltrate every part of our society, and we are working hard to counter that wherever we find it. To that end, we actively encourage applications from people of all faiths, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, economic circumstances and backgrounds, as well as those from disabled communities. No educational qualifications are needed to join our programmes.

Reasonable adjustments regarding accessibility will be made to ensure all are welcomed onto the programme. Please get in touch – we’re happy to talk things through.
