A group representing the capital’s ultra-Orthodox community is to open a branch in north-west London.

The headquarters of Interlink Foundation, which represents more than 200 Orthodox organisations across the country, are in Stamford Hill, but it has offices in Manchester.

An Interlink spokeswoman said it wanted “to build a strong local voice vis-à-vis the local authority and public sector”.

Interlink enables other charities through training, funding, and support and said its new branch had “got off to a good start” after a grant from Sport England.
