Islington: leading the way in place-based giving
We are proud to be at the forefront of the place-based giving movement, a new way of connecting people with their communities to create change. This approach is growing nationwide.
As the first ‘Giving’ in London, we inspired the London’s Giving movement, which is now active in 20 boroughs.
Giving schemes are empowering people, businesses and organisations to come together to build a better borough for everyone.
Based on the notion that we can all give something – time, skills and money – we channel those resources into aligned action that strategically addresses neighbourhood need in a joined-up way.
Acting on facts, data and hard evidence and with a deep knowledge of the community’s key issues and assets, we work to deliver people-friendly programmes outside local government provision.
With an ear to the ground and a finger on the pulse, we are breaking new ground on how communities can solve issues such as poverty, exclusion, loneliness, mental health and unemployment, from the grassroots.
