New application rounds of Community Chest funding just announced

18 March 2021

The next three application rounds of Islington Council’s Community Chest funding have just been announced


Community Chest is provided through a partnership between Islington Council and Cripplegate Foundation which administers the fund.

There are three Islington Council’s Community Chest application rounds each year. Funding of up to £5,000 a year is available for voluntary organisations that work with Islington residents who are experiencing poverty and/or isolation.  

The next three rounds 2021/2022 are:

  • 4 May 2021

  • 27 September 2021

  • 24 January 2022

To apply your organisation must have a turnover of less than £100,000. Priority is given to organisations with a turnover of less than £50,000. Organisations may only apply once a year whether a previous application was successful or not.  

Applications for Islington Council’s Community Chest are considered by a Panel made up of Islington Councillors, Cripplegate Foundation Governors and members of the Islington Community Network.
