How we help

Islington Giving shines a light on poverty and inequality and harness resources to create positive change in Islington. We shape our work across three themes:

  • Investing in young people - We provide opportunities and experiences for young people who would otherwise not have access to them. We do this by helping young people to make the most of their free time, and create future pathways by supporting initiatives for confidence and skills development such as business mentoring in schools.

  • Supporting familiesWe provide places for families facing challenges such as financial hardship or disability to socialise, engage and connect with dedicated support.

  • Reaching isolated people - We reach out to isolated people, connecting them to other residents, social activities and support services. Our current focus is on providing support for older people and young people with or at risk of developing mental health difficulties.

Everyone can give to Islington - whether with their time, energy, expertise, or money - to make a positive change for people who live here. Talk to us if you want to make a difference in your community.
