People will be able to reap the rewards of regeneration with more opportunities for skills development, real-life work experiences and benefits from new community schemes.

This ‘Tottenham Charter’ is a commitment made between Haringey Council and its partners including charities, businesses and housing developers.

Its focus is on enhancing education and training so the creation of a greater number of chances for employment and entrepreneurship become a reality.

Haringey Council leader, councillor Claire Kober, said: “The Tottenham Charter underlines our commitment to ensuring that the regeneration of Tottenham is about so much more than bricks and mortar – it is a real opportunity to improve quality of life for thousands of residents.

“By making these pledges, companies and organisations at the forefront of Tottenham’s regeneration are playing their part in ensuring local residents get the very best of social and economic opportunities – whether through taking up an apprenticeship, enjoying improved health facilities or leisure activities, or even gaining the skills to set up their own business.”

The ‘Tottenham Charter’ will work in correlation with the council’s plans to build thousands of new homes, jobs and community facilities over the next 20 years.

Jonathan kiddle, senior development manager at Grainger, said: “Grainger is delighted to be one of the first companies to sign up to the Tottenham Charter, an excellent initiative that we are very pleased to support.

“We are very much looking forward to forming a long lasting partnership with Gladesmore Community School and will assist them as they continue to provide an outstanding all round education to current and future pupils.”

Haringey Council’s Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF) sets out the vision that ‘A child born in Tottenham today (2014) will have access to the same level of opportunity that is at least equal to the best in London.’
