Octopus Communities

Octopus Communities unites 10 of Islington's largest community centres in a common effort to pool resources in order to help improve the lives of those who are disadvantaged and deprived.

Founded 1999

  • Mission statement

    To help the disadvantaged and deprived, young and old, of all communities, by:
    i) reaching out to, and supporting our communities, via meaningful activities and services; ii) inspiring them to develop activities which raise aspiration and a "can-do" mentality; iii) motivating them to live life to the full; iv) equipping them with the skills, competence and confidence to make their own place in society.
    One such initiative is the Wild Places project, designed to improve the environmental literacy of our communities and enable them to appreciate wildlife and the 'great outdoors'.
    By pooling the resources of our community centres, we seek to deliver our services collaboratively and cost-effectively, for the mutual benefit of all concerned.
