Other services


We are a non-clinical mental health charity, and there may be times that we are unable to provide the specific service that an individual is looking for. We have compiled several documents of alternative services to contact. The vast majority of these services are based in Haringey and targeted at residents of the borough.


Early Help in Haringey

All parents will at some point struggle with parenting their children and may need some practical support for a while, or advice on what to do when parenting becomes a challenge. Haringey’s Early Help Partnership can provide you with effective parenting support. Early help in Haringey can be offered by all of the services and providers,  internal, external, voluntary and community based, that enable families to achieve long-term, positive outcomes, become more resilient, and prevent the escalation of their needs.
