Who are Islington Giving?
We are an independent group of funders, businesses, residents and voluntary organisations working together to tackle poverty and inequality in Islington.
We want Islington to be a place where everyone – regardless of circumstance – has the opportunity and means to live a fulfilled life.
We work by shining a light on the issues of poverty and inequality and harnessing resources to address them. We focus on:
- Investing in young people
- Supporting families
- Reaching isolated people
- We make grants to voluntary organisations which provide support and activities
- We make, build and develop partnerships to deliver projects and create networks
- We fundraise
