Haringey Creates is the London Borough of Haringey’s Cultural Education Partnership, one of over 100 partnerships across the country.
Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs) support children and young people to fulfil their creative potential and access high-quality cultural experiences where they live, where they go to school, and where they spend their free time.

- We work closely with schools and alternative provisions, creative and cultural organisations and practitioners throughout our borough.
- Together we are striving to ensure every child and young person can develop their creativity.

Work with young people to develop agency and improve wellbeing.
