The Great Get Together 17 and 18 June 2017

The Great Get Together weekend will be the biggest community celebration of the year. Coming one year on from the untimely death of Jo Cox MP, the Jo Cox Foundation has joined forces with The Big Lunch, the UK’s annual get-together for neighbours to encourage neighbours and communities to celebrate and connect with each other.

Islington Council will award grants of up to £500 per group or event.

We will support initiatives that bring residents together and enable them to enjoy and celebrate what we all share in common. As a community organisation you may want to organise a community picnic in a local park or community setting, tea dances, coffee mornings or a party.

Please read the Guidance Notes carefully as it explains certain sections of the application form and contains important information regarding different types of events.

Applications are to be submitted via email: 

The closing date for applications is Sunday 7 May 2017 (11:59pm)
