The deadline for applications to the second 2018/19 round of Islington Council’s Community Chest has now passed.
The next application round deadline is at 12 noon on 21st January 2019. Organisations working to benefit the community in Islington, with annual incomes of less than £100,000, and which have not applied in the last year, will be able to apply for a grant of up to £5,000.
Over 60 organisations are funded through the Community Chest annually. These smaller organisations are an integral part of the network of support and community infrastructure in Islington, and this programme offers an opportunity to celebrate and bolster this work.
If you're looking to apply during the next round, and would like some inspiration to help with your application, take a look at three recent stories of inspiring organisations that have used Islington Council's Community Chest funding to make opportunities possible locally. The Chair and Islington Council’s Executive Member for Community Development, Councillor Kaya Comer-Schwartz, says the Community Chest provides an opportunity to celebrate “local people doing things for their community.”
