Celebrating Volunteers Week: Join us in driving social impact!

Happy #VolunteersWeek! We are so lucky to have such a connected, collaborative and vibrant voluntary sector in Islington. From lending a helping hand to driving social impact, thank you for all you do to create a brighter Islington together!

Here are three ways you can get involved this Volunteers Week and beyond.

1) Islington has a thriving voluntary sector and community organisations make a huge difference across the borough. Find details about volunteering opportunities with many groups in Islington through our partners at the Voluntary Action Islington, and please share with anyone who may be interested.

2) At Islington Giving and The BIG Alliance, we’re committed to maximising social value in Islington through collaboration and innovation. If you are a local purpose-driven business we’d love to hear from you.

2) Our partners The BIG Alliance (Businesses for Islington Giving) connect people who work or run their own business in Islington with the local community. You and your colleagues or employees can give time as mentors to help our young people shape their futures. You can also sign up to volunteer as a workplace, using your skills to give back to the wider community.
