Islington has a number of business support networks, forums and initiatives. As well as providing an opportunity to network with other local businesses, they enable the views and concerns of firms to be raised with the council and other agencies.
Specialist networks, such as Pubwatch, focus on the needs of particular traders. Initiatives, such as at the Nags Head, Archway and Finsbury Park, are partnerships that include the council, police and other partners to create an area which is clean, safe, accessible and provides a high quality environment for businesses, residents and visitors.
At the Angel, businesses have voted to make the area a Business Improvement District (BID). As a result, this initiative will see enhanced services, particularly around security and environmental improvements in the area. You can find out more about the various networks and how your business can get involved with the community from these pages.
