Community groups in Haringey are meeting to decide how best to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis.
Embrace UK Community Support Centre, which provides advice to disadvantaged groups, will host next week’s meeting.
Voluntary and community groups including Haringey Association of Voluntary and Community Organisations (HAVCO), Haringey Citizens Advice Bureau and Haringey Migrant Support Centre will meet with the council and NHS to determine Haringey’s capacity to support refugees.
They will identify any gaps in support that need addressing, to ensure that the borough responds to the refugee crisis in a coordinated way.
Cllr Claire Kober, Haringey Council leader, said: “Since news of the current humanitarian crisis broke we have been overwhelmed with messages from Haringey residents and charities who want to try and help.
“This meeting is about ensuring that Haringey is prepared to support those affected by this devastating crisis.”
The meeting will take place at the Eco Hub at Lordship Recreation Ground, Tottenham on Monday 12th October.
