Islington Giving is once again recruiting a group of eight local parents or carers to make decisions about how £115,000 of Islington Giving funding will be spent on activities for Islington families. Find out more about last year’s group.
A Residents’ Panel provides an opportunity for Islington residents to share their views and experiences and be involved in grantmaking decisions. It’s your chance to have your say on matters that affect Islington.
No previous experience is necessary. We would like to meet residents who have ideas about what is needed for parents or carers in their local community and who want to get involved.

- is a parent or carer of children under 18 (or under 30 if you are a parent/carer of a child with a disability)
- has a desire to effect change in your local community
- has some experience of the issues being addressed i.e. social or financial isolation, relationship conflict, domestic violence, disability or live with a family member who has physical or learning disabilities and/or mental ill-health.
