Welcome to MyAccount!
No, you do not need to live in Haringey. If you live outside the borough you can still create a My Account to access some of our online services.
If you do not receive an email to allow you to activate your account, check that the email hasn’t gone directly into your ‘junk’ or 'spam' folder. If not, register to create a My Account again. If this does not work you can contact us.
To log in you will need to use the email address and password that you entered when you created your account.
The first time you log in, you must activate your account by clicking on the link in the email that we sent you when you created your account.
Contact us and we will help you to reset your account. You can contact us.
You can do this in your account. Go to the ‘My Details’ section and select ‘change email address’. You will need to enter your new address and then confirm it.
If you have difficulty with the tasks above or need help signing up for My Account please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
