Help to stay at home

Everyone wants to continue living in their own home, as independently as possible, but some of us need extra support to do so as we get older. We can help you to access support and advice that is available in Islington.

This page sets out some of the support that is available to you in Islington, but for more information and full listings of the support you can access, go to the Adults Directory.
