The Haringey Pirates is a recipient of the Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund
The crew at the Haringey Pirates are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a three-year grant as part of the Mayor of London's Young Londoners Fund. The £45m fund has been created to fund London based projects that provide young people who are at risk of exclusion, with the support they need to fulfil their potential. This grant will allow us to launch our second learning programme - The Haringey Pirates; the first being The Hackney Pirates, which began in 2010. We will work with young people in Haringey who are falling behind at school and face disadvantages in their personal circumstances. We will develop their literacy, confidence and perseverance, by providing extra adult volunteer support, access to an unconventional, fantastical learning environment and the chance to work on real-world publishing projects – a book, film and an app.
London Mayor, Sadiq Khan says, “By investing in projects, and young people, that are dedicated to giving young Londoners an opportunity to get involved in positive activities, we can work to help every child and teenager at risk off the streets, and away from the dangers of crime. The projects we’ve invested in are already making a difference to young people in London.”
