Community and Giving

This year we are supporting:

CA Logo

Christian Aid is an international development organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. They work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. Christan Aid is part of a wider movement for social justice.

They provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.

 

GTT Logo

The Green Tara Trust is a faith-based organisation, following an ecumenical Buddhist tradition called the Western Buddhist Order.  For over 10 years they have been working towards ensuring positive health outcomes in Nepal. Their vision is that every human being can have access to basic health care and education. Having access to both empowers individuals to exercise choice and take responsibility, enabling them to improve their lives and those of their families and communities. 

CARIS Logo

Caris is a charity which runs two projects in Islington – a free and confidential Bereavement Counselling Service for children and adults and a Cold Weather Shelter. The Bereavement service is open to all regardless of race, religion and sexuality. The cold weather shelters are offered by several Islington churches, Union Chapel being one through its Margins homeless charity. They are run through the coldest months of the year and are staffed by volunteers from the community. The churches offer hospitality to homeless guests and supports them in finding more permanent accommodation.

  Last year we supported:

Amnesty Logo Islington Giving Logo

Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in over 150 countries and territories who campaign to end grave abuses of human rights.

Their vision is for every person to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.

Amnesty International is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion, and funded mainly by membership and public donations

Islington is home to some of the country’s richest people. However, we also have the second highest level of child poverty in England and the lowest life expectancy for men in London.

Islington Giving is a campaign for local philanthropy which asks residents and businesses to give what they can, be it money or time, to make a real difference to the community.

We support 30 projects which address our three key themes; Investing in Young People, Tackling Poverty and Confronting Isolation.
