Who we are

CARIS Haringey comprises five paid staff, including a Director who is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the charity. Additional contracted staff are employed for various CARIS activities, e.g. the Summer Playscheme.

We have many regular volunteers, complemented by additional volunteers for specific events and activities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds, reflecting the diverse population of Haringey. Collectively they speak a number of the many languages spoken in the borough.

Staff and volunteers have attended comprehensive training courses from accredited training providers on subjects relevant to their work and expertise, such as welfare rights, immigration and children-related issues. In addition, our affairs are controlled by a Board of Trustees who meet regularly to manage and to review the activity and direction of the charity.
