Islington Giving

Islington is a place of extremes where London’s richest and poorest residents exist side-by-side, living entirely different lives. Whilst it is home to some of the wealthiest individuals and next door to some of the most successful businesses in the country, it is also the eighth most deprived borough in England and the fourth most deprived borough in London. 46% of children in Islington live in poverty and in 2007 Islington had the highest rate of male suicide in England.

What is Islington Giving?

Islington Giving is a campaign – for Islington people by Islington people – to raise £3million over three years for innovative new ways to tackle poverty by investing in young people, confronting isolation and promoting volunteering.
The campaign is a coalition of charitable trusts, The Breadsticks Foundation, Cripplegate Foundation, The Morris Charitable Trust, Richard Cloudesley’s Charity, UnLtd and Voluntary Action Islington who want to work together in a unique and powerful partnership, using their knowledge of Islington to effect real change.
