"I’ve met other people and got out more which is what I wanted to do. I look forward to meeting everyone there. It’s made me feel better in myself."

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.

It’s Me It’s You
a new mental health and wellbeing funding programme 

Through its ongoing commitment to invest in youth, tackle poverty and confront isolation Islington Giving’s ‘It’s Me it’s You’ campaign aims to shine a spotlight and take action on the unacceptably high levels of poor mental health in Islington.

As part of this exciting initiative Islington Giving is launching a new funding programme that challenges voluntary and community organisations in Islington to increase access and support for people with, or at high risk of developing poor mental health.

With a focus on young people during its first phase, Expressions of Interest  are now invited from organisations that can help promote positive mental health and wellbeing for young people, aged between 10-27, while preventing the escalation of problems that contribute to poor mental health.
