A consultation with Islington’s young people
Islington Giving has invested in young people since our launch in 2010. Young people told us that they wanted to do more at the weekends when most activities were closed. From Saturday Night Out at the Sobell Centre, which has attracted 400 young people, to Friday Night Out with Arsenal in the Community, Islington Giving has opened venues and tested new ways of giving young people opportunities to make the most of their free time. Mentoring Works, launched in September 2014, now brings young people into businesses so that they can step into the world of work.
We wanted to know more about how to support young people to get the best out of Islington and so we asked over 300 of Islington’s young people for their views.
