Haringey Council Grants & Offers
The Haringey Climate Forum runs a grants programme each year, funded by Haringey Council for community groups delivering carbon reduction projects.
In 2019 Haringey Climate Forum funded four projects via this programme, according to the Ninth Carbon Report (p 41):
- £1,500 to install double glazing for a café on Wolves Lane improving energy efficiency and reducing energy bills
- Awarding Global Group with £4,500 to install 450 LED light bulbs in 250 homes in Northumberland Park.
- The Haringey Wheely Tots group were awarded £3,000 to carry out a project that recruited eight cycling ambassadors to take the two-day Cytech Home Mechanic course and the four-day National Cycle Instructor Training.
- The Friends of Chestnut Park group was awarded £1,000 to improve the pedestrian route for pupils and parents going to St Ann’s School. This enabled them to provide a gate in the park fence and associated paths so that people could cross Blackboy Lane at the controlled crossing.
