Our focus on continually improving our services means we’re now developing our services to work more closely with Primary Care. Teams are developing their relationships with local GP collaboratives to ensure that not only are clients promptly assessed by our services, but also that we maintain a focus on client’s physical and mental health.
With a greater emphasis on improving the physical health of our clients, there is also a newly appointed borough physical health care lead. We are also developing closer working relationships with Haringey Citizens Advice Service and will have a specialist worker embedded within the team.

Testimonial from Social Worker
"In my role as a Social Worker in the East Community Support and Recovery Team, I work with a very varied client group. The role is busy but I receive good support from my manager and colleagues, which helps me overcome any challenges I face. A large part of my role is acting as an advocate and being the client’s voice. I enjoy building therapeutic relationships with client’s and their carer’s, which sometimes is a challenge if the client doesn’t see the need to meet with us, but I always ensure I put people in touch with the right support.
I’ve had good career development opportunities working in Haringey, and since joining the service I’ve trained as a Best Interests Assessor and a Practice Educator. I think working in Haringey can be challenging, but I’ve found it very rewarding."
