Spring 2020 Edition

Welcome to the Spring Edition of 4U2 Newsmag

Over the past year I have had the privilege of working with a range of aspiring and startup entrepreneurs in Haringey with the Start-ups in London Libraries (SiLL) business programme. I have met and been inspired by various groups and businesses over our 19 wards including 4U2, who continue to highlight the impressive range of individuals and activities available. As a local resident, I would like to encourage further engagement with our local community groups and businesses in 2020 by highlighting International Women’s Day theme, which is #eachforequal. 

I would like to continue to build on our knowledge sharing community, not just with women but all genders and ages, to assist each others ideas and find solutions to our goals as individuals and entrepreneurs. Having heard an amazing range of ideas to solve the social and collective issues we face locally and globally, I have also seen the benefits of connecting and learning from each others experiences and networks. In this edition we pay tribute to the legacy of Bernie Grant, honouring 20 years since his passing his impact locally and beyond.

We also look at the reality that females experience with domestic abuse, and those who
have to and may need to access support with ‘We Are Survivors’. And with increased awareness on period poverty, women now have access to free sanitary products in schools and libraries.
We are taught knowledge is power. The results of people meeting to brainstorm solutions, share contacts and resources can save countless time and money. Overall, knowledge sharing with others is what keeps us improving and performing at our best.

Haringey has 9 libraries, various community groups and networks to help us access
information and services. To improve equality and create a more balanced economy I
advocate connecting with at least one new local community group or business in 2020.
