In 2010, a group of Islington charitable trusts, including the Morris Charitable Trust, came together to form a unique and powerful partnership in Islington Giving. Islington Giving has grown into a network of local people, businesses, funders and charities that work together to change lives for good.
Islington is full of opportunity, but life is tough for many residents, facing inequality, poor mental health, financial difficulty and loneliness. Islington Giving works closely with inspiring local people and organisations, knowing that together we can improve the lives of every resident. Everybody’s contribution matters and anyone can give.
Since founded in 2010, they have built a great track-record of making positive things happen. Each year, thousands of local people take part in change-making activities made possible by the generosity of people who care about Islington. By working with inspiring local partners, they have reached over 30,000 residents, and enjoined the support of more than 8,000 volunteers. This has inspired 20 other boroughs to get giving, starting the growing ‘London’s Giving’ movement.
Islington Giving helps by Investing in Young People, Supporting Families, and Reaching Isolated People. For further information visit www.islingtongiving.org.uk
