Having explored the website, you will now have a better understanding of our work – but nothing beats getting out into the community and hearing first-hand about the issues faced by community organisations supporting those living in the borough, and how your business can support those efforts.

There are two ways you, as a prospective member can do this:

  • A free Islington Insight Visit – taking you on a tour of an Islington neighbourhood to visit some of the community organisations in that area, to hear more about their work and how they benefit from help
  • A free team challenge for a group of staff – providing practical or skills-based help to a community organisation, whilst also learning more about the work they do
