The Stuart Low Trust

Through Islington Giving, Union Chapel supports the Stuart Low Trust.

SLT Logo

The Stuart Low Trust (SLT) is a health promotion charity based in Islington. Stuart Low was a young Islington man who killed himself in 1997 after failing to find the help he needed to cope with schizophrenia. His death prompted local people to form the Trust to create better services for other vulnerable people. SLT was established in 1999. The need for its work continues.

SLT runs a variety of activities to help improve people’s wellbeing, especially those experiencing social isolation or mental distress. These include:

"Coffee and Conversation" at Union Chapel every Wednesday from 10 am (we also brew tea) - just drop in for a chat, or simply enjoy some peace and quiet in lovely surroundings. Any topic can be brought in, and nobody is preached at.

A Friday Evening Event which runs 52 weeks a year and provides an opportunity to socialise, a healthy buffet and an interesting presentation or workshop to get involved in. Events are held every Friday at St Mary’s Community Centre, Upper Street, Islington N1 2TX (next to St Mary’s Church)

A series of Saturday events, supported by Islington Giving.

A Sunday Philosophy Forum, led by experienced philosophers from a variety of backgrounds.

Monthly outings to places of interest in or around the capital.

A weekly Gardening Project at Culpeper Community Garden, Islington.

A programme of narrowboat holidays and trips throughout the summer months.

Occasional life and work skills workshops and training courses.

All activities are either free or low cost, and welcome participants regardless of their circumstances or area of residence.

No formal arrangements are required to attend our events – just come along and check us out!
