Finding space

Find out how we support voluntary groups with affordable spaces in Islington.

The availability of council premises for rent by voluntary sector organisations is limited, however, from time to time, space does become available.

The Councils Voluntary and Community Sector Strategy 2016-2020 outlines how we will support the sector to access affordable accommodation in the borough, including using council properties and planning gain.

We will inform you of any opportunities that become available.

Affordable workspace

As part of the council’s commitment to build a fairer, more inclusive Islington, we have developed a pioneering Affordable Workspace Strategy to create new workspaces that are genuinely accessible and affordable to local businesses and organisations.
