Offer help

We’ve seen some incredible acts of kindness and achievements during the pandemic. If you’d like to do something to help, there are plenty of ways you can get involved, including by volunteering, donating or by being a Covid-19 Health Champion, where you’ll get the latest info to help you support others.

Helping holiday hunger

Thanks to the amazing individuals and businesses supporting Islington foodbanks to make sure nobody in our community goes hungry. Whether you’re donating time, money, food, or business partnership, your gift makes a real difference. Thank you.

Can you donate food or volunteer for a foodbank? Contact your local foodbank - find Islington foodbanks on our map.

Could you make a large-scale food donation? Please contact weareislington@islington.gov.uk and we will be in touch.

To donate money

You could donate to your local food bank, or through Islington Giving Crisis and Recovery Fund, which provides much needed support for local people who are struggling financially, socially and mentally.

Become a 'We are Islington' volunteer 

There are lots of ways to help, including volunteering with local community groups or charities. 

If you/your business wants to help, please approach a local group or check out Voluntary Action Islington. You can also email: volunteer@vai.org.uk.  

Please ensure that any organisation that you help gives you advice on how to keep yourself and others safe. 

Volunteer as a vaccination marshal

The NHS is looking for marshals to support at vaccination centres.

The role involves being on your feet for the shift while supporting the roll-out of the vaccination programme.

Can you donate to help someone who is struggling?

Support if you are a local voluntary organisation

If you are a voluntary organisation or community centre that is continuing to provide service or activity and are happy for us to share details of this with residents in the local area please let us know your details.

Become a Covid-19 Health Champion

Measures taken in response to the pandemic and Islington's recovery can be quite confusing. So, we want to make sure that everyone is clearly informed and can make good decisions to help keep Islington safe. We also want to make sure that everyone has a reliable source to turn to for help and support during different stages of Covid-19 recovery. This could be you.
