Peray Ahmet

photo.JPGI am proud to say that I have lived in Wood Green for the whole of my life. I have attended primary and secondary school in Wood Green and live here with my family. I am rooted in the community and have a vast network of friends and family across the whole of Haringey. I care passionately about the community in Wood Green and that is why I am standing to be a local councillor in Noel Park.

I am a committed public servant and have worked in the public sector for over 10 years, this includes Haringey and three other London based local authorities. I am now a Commissioning and Procurement advisor working for a South London based local authority. I have acted as a frontline key worker/adviser with children and young people leaving care and the long term unemployed. I have led on strategic work in setting up local drugs services, youth clubs and sexual health services. As a volunteer I have been a school governor at two local schools in Haringey and also volunteered with the Haringey Youth Offending Service and Haringey Race Equality Committee.

I am also an active trade unionist and am a Unison Steward and Labour Link officer for my local branch. Protecting and advocating the rights of workers is very important to me, especially in light of all the brutal Coalition government led cuts that are being forced upon local authorities.

In addition to English I speak one of Haringey’s key community languages: Turkish. I have a strong commitment to community cohesion and strongly value the diversity we have in Haringey.

pahmet.jpgpahmet2.jpgAlong with my fellow ward candidates Alan Strickland and Denise Marshall I am frequently out talking to local residents and Noel Park based organisations. Please get in touch with us if you would like to talk to us or get involved in our local campaign!

Dear Peray,
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.

Haringey Resident
