Building Social Networks for Families
Following research and consultation with families in Islington, and organisations working with them, Islington Giving identified priority action areas in its work with families. Local families told us they want 'a life, not a service', and so grants to support the building of social networks for families have been awarded in 2018.
Asian Women Lone Parents Association | 2 years | April 2018 to April 2020 | £35,000 | towards the costs of the Linking Together Project.
