We also require a volunteer Mon-Wed from 4:30pm for about 30 minutes to assist Martin with the collection of food from Sainsburys, someone with a car would be ideal. If you can help can you please let Mary know via email on or by telephone on 020 8808 0454.

As Sainsburys' chosen Charity of the Year, the Irish Centre was recently presented with a cheque for £1000 for their Welfare Projects. Accepting the cheque on behalfe of the Centre is Teresa Intavarant, Advice & Support Service Manager and Moira Terrill, Haringey irish Pensioners Group.


From 7th November 2016 the benefit cap is reduced and is set at a different level depending on whether you live inside or outside London:

The benefit cap will impact significantly on client’s ability to manage, not least their ability to afford their rent. Each local authority should have a provision to assist people affected by this change.
