Towards a fairer Islington

We're determined to make Islington fairer. To create a place where everyone, whatever their background, has the opportunity to reach their potential and enjoy a good quality of life.

Our priorities

To help bring our vision to life we have four clear objectives:

A house icon to signify decent and genuinely affordable homes for all

Decent and genuinely affordable homes for all: building new council homes, protecting private renters, being a good landlord and preventing homelessness

Icon of two hands shaking to signify jobs and opportunity, and empowerment

Jobs and opportunity: delivering an inclusive economy, supporting people into work and ensuring young people have the best possible start

Alert Icon to signify a safer borough for all

A safer borough for all: tackling ASB, ensuring young people are safe and encouraging a more cohesive borough for all

Icon of two trees to signify a greener and cleaner Islington

A greener and cleaner Islington: keeping Islington clean and tidy, encouraging greener travel, creating a healthier environment for all and tackling the climate crisis.



Delivering fairness has been an increasing challenge not least because of around £250m cuts to our budget by government over the last ten years. However we’ve managed to balance our budgets and have continued to make strides towards our goal.
