The Young Foundation was commissioned by the Haringey Community Panel to engage the community of Tottenham to understand how they viewed the impact of the August disturbances, and to consider actions that can be taken to help the area recover and improve.

Over the course of a month, The Young Foundation worked with over 150 local residents and stakeholders in Tottenham through deliberative workshops, 1:1 interviews and focus groups. This report is a summary of the findings from this community engagement.
