Islington Council’s Community Chest is open for the first of three rounds of applications in 2018/19. The deadline for applications in this round is 12 noon on Monday 7th May.
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, are 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 for 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. “It is amazing what can be achieved with such a modest amount of money”, says panel member Lucy Bingham, “especially when combined with the energy and enthusiasm of some truly amazing people.”
