This place really gives me the life energy. It gives me the main guide to find my way in the UK. Student

The Centre is like a family for many refugees. I would like the Centre to open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. It's my home.
Betty, Centre User

The Centre offers practical support, education, friendship and sanctuary. We rely entirely on voluntary funding and donations. We need to open more days but we cannot run services without the generosity of our supporters. Please join me in supporting the Islington Centre. Betty and others like her are relying on us.
