Event description

Description

We will be meeting outside Essex Road Station, Canonbury Rd N1, at 1.10pm; walking to Walter Sickert Community Centre at 1.20pm.

This Islington Giving Inside Islington Tour is an opportunity to gain firsthand insight into two organisations supported by Islington Giving – Help on your Doorstep and Abianda.

Help on Your Doorstep has launched four Good Neighbours Schemes since 2012 – the first on New River Green Estate. Abianda supports young women affected by gangs.

The event:

1. (1.30pm) Islington Giving

2. (1.50pm) Help on Your Doorstep (HOYD) and the New River Green Good Neighbours Scheme (GNS): John Warby (Team Leader), Nicky Ludgate (GNS Coordinator) and volunteers will talk about the estate and their work.

  • After hearing from HOYD staff you will see the New River Green Estate scheme in action – visiting the community vegetable garden (weather permitting) and an Arts & Crafts Group where you will meet volunteers and participants.

3. (2.30pm) "I Never Knew I Was So Powerful": Abianda and The Star Project - Abi Billinghurst, Founder and Director

Refreshments will be served

This is a chance to gain a real insight into ‘the other Islington’ and the amazing work of our voluntary organisations.

We are delighted to welcome all friends, supporters and interested people and companies. Please tell a friend or colleague.

Numbers are very limited so book your place soon.

Islington Giving brings funders, businesses, residents and voluntary organisations together to tackle poverty and inequality in the borough and improve the lives of our residents. We have raised over £5million since our launch in 2010 and supported over 16,000 residents and 4,000 volunteers. Our place-based giving model has inspired a London's Giving movement across the city. Read our latest review here to find out more.

Islington Giving funds three Help on Your Doorstep Good Neighbours Schemes in partnership with the Islington Clinical Commissioning Group, Peabody Housing Association and Islington Council’s Homes and Communities Department.
