Resident Support Scheme 

Our Resident Support Scheme is available for Islington residents who are facing extreme hardship. Grants can be given to help if you are on a low income and struggling financially; in need of essential household items; or if there is a cut to Housing Benefit and you are finding it hard to meet your rent payments. 

If you need to apply please email the RSS team with your contact information and details about your situation.

Other financial support available

You can get more support and advice in the Benefits and support, Jobs and careers, and advice sections of our website.
