Usual Service:

Help on Your Doorstep aims to improve health and wellbeing of people in Islington, especially those who are vulnerable and isolated. Working with residents we seek to find solutions to the issues which make life difficult, strengthen communities to do more for themselves and enable people to improve their life chances. 

Our Connect teams work throughout Islington and can help you with many of the challenges and issues that you face. They can help you make the most of the opportunities that are open to you. They offer an information and referral service, which means that they can provide initial information and support on a wide range of issues and refer you on to other local organisations for further advice and help. For information please go to our Connect service 

We also run a number of Good Neighbours Schemes throughout Islington which can provide you with opportunities to meet people in your local community, try new activities and get more active. For more information please go to Good Neighbours Schemes 

We have offices throughout Islington where we can see clients with pre-booked appointments. Please see the contact us page of our website for up-to-date details.
