Islington Giving

Islington Giving is a campaign to tackle poverty and isolation by taking action to improve people’s lives. We want everyone in Islington to become involved in the local community and here we show you how.

We encourage people to give what they can, be it money, time or talents, to make a real difference in our local community – no matter how large or small the contribution, everyone has something to offer and gain by being involved.

Thanks to the BBC for creating this short film which highlights the work of one of our delivery partners – North London Cares http://
