- improve mental health for everyone,
- make sure young people have the best chance in life.
Grants can be used to enable organisations to identify, resource and remove barriers to people living with disabilities from taking full advantage of what is on offer in Islington. There is no deadline, and applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
Open Grants & Programmes
