Haringey Irish Cultural & Community Centre has been established since 1987 and is a product of the many people who have contributed to our development. We have constantly sought to improve the quality of our facilities to ensure we are a well-used community space. The poet WB Yeats talks about “Wings have memory of Wings” indicating that one generation builds on the work of the previous generation. Due to our strong foundations we look with confidence to the future and to grow as a community building.
The Centre is a registered charity (1003015) that encourages social contact, individual support and community co-operation. We aim to promote cohesive and well-functioning communities. We run support services for the most vulnerable and isolated residents in the local community. We offer function halls and meeting spaces accessible to all. We offer low cost office space to voluntary groups and charities. We cater for the needs of the young and the old; the many dance and music groups for young people fit along-side tea-dances for pensioner groups.
Our two main services are the Advice & Support Services and the Day Care and Lunch Club both are part funded by ESP grant programme run by the Irish Government. Our General Management Committee is made up of a diverse group of individuals and users groups. Our many volunteers contribute to making the Centre a hospitable and productive community building.
