About Haringey: Haringey Labour runs one of the most ambitious and progressive councils in London.

Our vision for Haringey seeks to build upon the strengths that have made it home to people from every ethnic and social background and every walk of life. Its vibrancy and diversity is matched only by its resilience and confidence. Its sense of pride, matched by its sense of community.
