Haringey Race & Equality Council has been established since the 1960’s (previously known as Haringey Racial Equality Council), and leads the struggle against discrimination in Haringey.
Haringey REC works in conjunction with the Equality & Human Rights Commission and the London Borough of Haringey to:
- eliminate unlawful discrimination;
- promote equality and human rights;
- promote good relations between people of different groups, and;
- promote effective working relationships with statutory agencies, and across the voluntary and community sector as a whole
Given the strategic importance of Haringey REC to local equality and diversity work it is vital that we continue to work in partnership with local stakeholders; Statutory, Independent, Voluntary and Private which will ultimately benefit the whole community. Haringey REC has a thorough knowledge and decades of experience in the workings and structures of local service providers. E.g. Local Authority, Care Trusts, the Police, Schools and Colleges and is involved at many levels in joint partnership work with these agencies.
Haringey REC provides a range of integrated support services which aim to enable Black & Minority Ethnic, Refugee organisations and disability groups to deliver better services more effectively to larger service user groups. In 2009, we werer awarded the local Disability representation and casework contract from LB Haringey with the aim of making a real difference to the way people experience, benefit and are represented on disability issues in Haringey. Haringey REC is the lead partner of Haringey Disability First Consortium. We are committed to providing a high quality service to the community
