Disability Fund

This fund  supports organisations’ capacity to be inclusive so people living with disabilities can take full advantage of what is on offer in Islington. Grants of up to £3,000 will be available to organisations who have received funding from Islington Giving, Cripplegate Foundation or Islington Council’s Community Chest in the last 18 months.
