Youth workers from Haringey visited Paris in November 2015 to learn different ways of working.  Last weekend Haringey Community Organisers hosted a delegation from Paris looking at youth work in both countries.

The delegation visited a range of locations, including The Selby Centre, Bruce Grove Youth Centre, Bernie Grant Arts Centre, and Broadwater Farm FC.

Moussa Sylla, Haringey community organiser, said: “It has been a fascinating experience sharing our knowledge of each other’s work.
