Hello and welcome to issue 16. November marks six months since Councillor Joseph Ejiofor became leader of Haringey Council.

TCP spoke to Cllr Ejiofor about what this experience has been like; finding out his aspirations for the borough and gaining insight into what may lie ahead in the near future.

On page 5, a newly formed campaign group made up of residents currently housed in temporary accommodation, wants to know when they will be permanently re-housed.

We also take a look at Universal Credit on page 7. The benefit has now been rolled out across Haringey as part of a reform to the UK’s welfare system. Team members at Tottenham Job Centre told us how they will be supporting local people access their Universal Credit payments and get into work.

Contributor, Amy Bush shares her love for Haringey’s libraries and we find out how technical sportswear designer, Luis Lopez-Smith is supporting local talent.
