Covid-19 crisis in IslingtonContinue
We know these are difficult times for everyone in the borough, particularly for the most vulnerable. There are many people and families who will suffer the greatest hardship, and we are doing all we can to help Islington’s charity groups and organisations who work with them directly.
We’ve launched an Islington Giving Crisis Fund to support the most vulnerable people in Islington during the Covid-19 outbreak. Every penny raised will go directly to support the groups and organisations we know and trust to deliver essential services.
Money from this fund will go straight back out to organisations we know and trust, working in the community with residents who are isolated, anxious and in most need of financial support through this crisis.
Some of the fund money will go directly to residents in need of food or help with fuel bills via the London Borough of Islington’s Residents Support Scheme, as well as through our other trusted partners.
To make sure groups can access this money quickly and easily we are using the London Communities Response Fund portal in order to assess and process grants.
