The ‘Challenging inequality through community connection in Islington’ report sought to listen to and learn from residents in Islington. The report details insight from residents lives and experiences. The findings will help to inform the future work of Cripplegate Foundation and its restricted fund Islington Giving, and how we might best continue working towards our aims of reducing poverty and inequality in the borough.
The research project took a qualitative, community based approach, working with a group of Islington residents. Together with Power With, we trained this group as community researchers, and they then helped to design and deliver the research. They reported that this was a valuable experience and way to deliver the project. Twelve semi-structured interviews and five focus groups were held, which engaged with a total of 36 participants who are residents of Islington.
