"Islington is a divided borough, home to some of the richest people and businesses in the country and some of the poorest. We have the second highest level of child poverty in England and the lowest life expectancy for men in London.
We believe that community giving can bridge the gap between the two Islingtons. Our coalition of charitable partners knows Islington inside out. We find local solutions to local issues and ensure that the money and time given so generously is used to make a real difference.
We believe that everyone in Islington can give, and that by getting involved in our community we can make Islington a better place for us all. "
There is a week of special activities devoted to publicise Islington Giving from 1- 9 June. See here for details.
