Jason Arthur


I grew up in the borough (living in Crouch End for a decade and attending St Aidan’s Primary School in Stroud Green) and my mother provided careers advice for young people in Haringey for over 20 years. Now, as an active member of the community, I care deeply about Haringey and feel honoured to have the opportunity to serve the borough on Haringey Council.  

I passionately believe that as citizens, we all have a civic and moral responsibility to build a more just society. For me, that means tackling both inequalities of opportunity and outcome in order to ensure that anyone, regardless of their class, race, gender or creed, can achieve their aspirations. I joined the Labour Party back in 2004 because I believed that it was the only political party capable of delivering policies in the interests of the many, not the few. Ten years later, I believe that more than ever.

I am incredibly passionate about education and young people: I taught English for two years in East London, work as a manager at Teach First (a charity dedicated to addressing educational inequalities), and I am a governor of Heartlands High School in Wood Green. As a councillor I would particularly look to focus on what I and the council can do to provide opportunities for young people to achieve educational success and fulfill their potential.

Dear Jason,
Prior to Thursday’s Poll I would be grateful if you could let me know if, if elected, you will be urging the Council to re-open the 6 drop-in centres for the elderly described as ‘essential’ and which Haringey Council closed in 2011 / 2012? I believe there is still a good deal of money left unused in the One Borough One Future fund. I have contacted Catherine West over this issue and raised it on a number of Labour Party platforms. I have not received a single reply to date. I look forward to hearing from you.
