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
Gracie Loveday (who ran the Brighton Marathon to raise funds for Islington Giving in 2015), is running this year’s London Marathon to support our work. Mother of two Gracie, who has worked at local family-run estate agent Currell for 11 years, is currently in the final stages of her preparations.
