Islington Giving: A life not a service

Islington Giving is committed to supporting families as part of its work to tackle poverty and inequality in Islington. Following a consultation with local families and those that work with them Islington Giving has recently launched its new strategy for supporting families – ‘A life not a service’.

Building Social Networks is one of the four action areas identified in the report in direct response to what people told Islington Giving would make a difference. With the benefit of learning from ‘A life not a service’ Islington Giving invites proposals from organisations that can help families build long-term supportive relationships.

The focus is particularly on offering support to families who have limited access to wider networks because of social or financial isolation, relationship conflict / domestic violence or a family member living with a physical or learning disabilities and / or mental ill-health.


Islington Giving is currently accepting applications from organisations working to build the social networks of families.

The deadline for applications to this porgramme is Monday 13th November 2017
