The Peace Alliance
WE MOURN THE LOSS OF OUR CHAIRMAN, TERRY MANSFIELD CBE, WHO, UNFORTUNATELY PASSED AWAY ON 28TH MARCH AS A RESULT COVID-19. HIS LEGACY WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
The Peace Alliance was launched in July 2001 as a local initiative in Haringey to tackle the underlying causes of violent crime.
Today, The Peace Alliance works nationally with key statutory agencies such as the Home Office and the Metropolitan Police advising on key policy issues.
The Peace Alliance is well known for its work across all communities to engender community cohesion, partnerships and peace whilst also working with vulnerable people, victims of crime, their families and young people.
The Community Food Hub
In April 2019, The Peace Alliance launched the Community Food Hub in partnership with Freedom’s Ark as a direct response to ongoing socio-economic needs in Tottenham and surrounding communities. Supported by the Felix Project and other partners we provide essential perishable food items up to 2-3 times a week or more to the most vulnerable with a vision to address hunger and food poverty in our communities. Our ethos is “no hunger, no waste”. Read ITV article.
The Peace Alliance is also excited to bring together practical support services and groups under one roof twice a week so that the residents of our community can have access to services that better their emotional, physical, emotional and financial well-being. The Peace Alliance has also partnered with Freedoms Ark to provide a CAP (Christians Against Poverty) Job Club in Tottenham, to help get people into paid employment.
Tackling violent crime requires more than just better policing. Within our communities we can take strides in eradicating violent crime from our society by creating sustainable and legitimate pathways to success for our young people. We are calling on all Londoner’s to sign up to our TRUCE pact;
