Haringey is a diverse, vibrant and exciting place to live and work with much to offer those who make it their home. As with any other borough, also has its challenges, not least the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic which has negatively impacted employment and income for our residents – with evidence suggesting Young people, Women, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups, the Self-employed and people with disabilities will have experienced a greater degree of adversity in relation to the labour market since the inception of the pandemic.
