10A South Grove N6 6BS and on Zoom
Tony Baker, long-time Highgate resident and Highgate Society member, co-chair and then chair of the Harington Scheme from 2008 to 2017, reviews the history of the Harington Scheme – how it began, how it has grown and changed, and major problems overcome.
Alison Kelly, who became chair of Harington Trustees in the early summer this year, will reflect on how as a new chair she sees Harington and the challenges it faces.
Harington provides a unique opportunity for young adults with learning disabilities and/or difficulties, delivering individual learning programmes designed to help them into employment, further education or a more rewarding life. With an emphasis on horticultural training, the scheme also provides retail training in its charity shops.
Set up as a charity by the local community over forty years ago, Harington is located on a unique and beautiful site in Highgate, North London.
Entry £5 to include a glass of wine (£3 on Zoom). Booking via Eventbrite – click here.
