New report: our funding in Islington during the pandemic

As Covid-19 began to spread at the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020 and the country was plunged into its first lockdown, it immediately became apparent that as local funders, well integrated into the fabric of the voluntary and community sector in Islington, Cripplegate Foundation and Islington Giving would have to respond quickly to help groups adapt to meet the needs of the people they support. Cripplegate Foundation and Islington Giving have supported groups with funding to respond to this community need at both the individual and organisational level and the information documented in this report goes some way to demonstrate the impact that this funding has had to date.

The report touches upon the work of 43 organisations that received a total of 50 grants across all of Islington Giving and Cripplegate Foundation’s funded programmes. Cripplegate Foundation and Islington Giving funding – wether Crisis funds, longer term funding support or ongoing funded programmes – have collectively played a key role in helping ensure the worst impacts of the pandemic, for both residents and the sector locally, have been mitigated.
