Letter - Haringey successes have won coverage

Kate Robertson will be pleased to learn that Haringey Council is indeed adept at 'selling its improvement journey' ('Ex-Haringey PRO recalls Climbie,' News, 14 October).

We have achieved extremely positive broadcast and print coverage, including The Independent's front-page splash on the transformation of the Broadwater Farm Estate.

A major TV documentary maker is also planning a series on one of our successful services, and our media evaluation shows a sustained shift from the negative coverage Robertson experienced to mostly positive coverage.

Our award-winning monthly magazine, mailed to every household in the borough, is rated more highly by residents than any other source of news about Haringey. Hits on our website are up 100 per cent year-on-year and our Beacon status for community involvement speaks volumes.

Charles Skinner, FCIPR, head of comms and consultation, Haringey Council.
