Cripplegate Foundation | Background Information

Cripplegate Foundation is an independent charity addressing poverty and inequality in the London Borough of Islington and parts of the City of London. We are an innovative funder and convenor aiming to promote social change through our grant making, our programmes and partnerships. We partner with Islington Council in the Local Welfare Scheme (Islington Resident Support Scheme, IRSS) which provides direct financial and wider assistance to Islington’s most vulnerable residents. It is a unique example of a local authority and grant-making trust working closely together to design and implement a creative response to national changes in welfare provision and hardship faced by those on low-incomes.
