We support people in Islington to improve their health and well-being, especially those who are vulnerable and isolated. At a time when needs and complexity are so high and resources so stretched, our work is needed more than ever.
Islington is a borough of contrasts, with a stark gap between those who ‘have’ and those who ‘have not’. False perceptions that the borough is wealthy throughout and skewed statistics caused by the pockets of wealth significantly misrepresent reality. The reality is that Islington is the 6th most deprived local authority in London.
With the support of our fantastic staff, trustee and volunteer team, our partners, and funders we are committed to making Islington a fairer place to live in.
