Access Islington Hubs

Many residents are experiencing challenging times – the Access Islington Hubs are here to offer help and support in person at either of our two hubs on Upper Street and in Finsbury Library.

The Access Islington Hubs offer a combination of drop in advice and support surgeries, as well as pre-booked advice and guidance sessions. 

If you need extra help with something, you can speak to one of our friendly advisors and they will take some time to talk to you and understand what you need help with before making sure you get the service or support you need.

Support available

  • Money: get help with your budget, finance and debt
  • Food: we can signpost you to food banks, provide food bank vouchers, and help you to get longer-term support through our community partners
  • Wellbeing: whatever is affecting your wellbeing, we can connect you to the right support through a range of local services
  • Housing: we can help with your housing queries and connect you to services such as Housing Needs, Housing Repairs and the Citizen’s Advice Bureau
  • Family: we can connect you to services for information and advice about childcare, activities and services for parents and carers, children and young people
  • Community safety: help if you’re affected by crime or anti-social behaviour
