As you all know, apart from the services we provide to homeless and families living in temporary accommodation, CARIS also supports families who have ‘no recourse to public funds’ and the families who are having temporary financial difficulties. This is done by providing weekly food parcels and toiletries. Many of the families we support are dependent on this weekly food supply.
We are running very low on our reserves thus urgently need donations of dry food such as: pasta, rice, flour, cereal, tinned food (no meet please), tinned fish, tea, sugar, soaps, shampoo and toothpaste etc
Please share this with your contacts, schools (harvest donations), churches, private business, companies etc
Don’t hesitate to contact me if further information is needed 02088005300

We have had high increase in phone calls for housing advice and assistance requests.

FEATURED IN CHANNEL 4’S ‘THE SECRET MILLIONAIRE’
The documentary series with a social conscience highlights the positive difference community groups can make in deprived areas where homelessness can be rife, and aims to explore some of the challenges facing a cross section of diverse communities in Great Britain today. The programme follows a ‘volunteer’ as he spends some time with the community organisations in Haringey, to gain an insight into the work that they do to alleviate the effects of poverty in their local area.
In the first of the new series, Kevin Morley, the former MD of Rover, looks for work as a volunteer among community projects in Haringey, North London. The programme follows Kevin as he spends time with the community organisations in Haringey, to gain an insight into the work that they do to alleviate the effects of poverty in their local area.
Kevin spent several days at the Adventure Playground where he assisted with activities and spent time with young people attending the playground. At CARIS Kevin went on outreach visits with the Mobile Toy Library run to families living temporary accommodation with Indira Kartallozi- Senior Advice & Outreach Worker.
At the end of his stay, Kevin gives away nearly a quarter of a million pounds.
Nick Jackson, Director of Haringey Play Association and Gloria Saffrey , Director of CARIS Haringey said,
“We were approached by a TV company who told us that they were making a documentary about the positive difference that community groups make in areas of deprivation. We were happy to have them film our work as we know that our organisations are providing quality services that are desperately needed and highly valued by local parents, children, young people and the community. We were astounded and stunned when we were eventually told the truth about our ‘volunteer’.”
Secret Millionaire Kevin Morley said,
”I had no idea families lived in these conditions and the daily challenges they face”.
The programme was shown on Sunday 22nd March on Channel 4 at 9.00pm
