Islington Council's Community Chest application form

Islington Council's Community Chest is funded by Islington Council in partnership with Cripplegate Foundation.

Cripplegate Foundation is committed to working towards becoming a more inclusive Foundation. As part of this work we are interested in how organisations demonstrate that they are taking steps towards identifying and removing barriers preventing people living with disabilities from taking full advantage of your offer.


For clarity, people living with disabilities, can be interpreted as anyone living with a physical disability, learning disability and/or mental ill-health.


Cripplegate Foundation is committed to ensuring our processes are accessible to all.  Please contact us if you would like to discuss providing the information required in a different way.   Phone:  020 7288 6940      Email:  anne.shewring@cripplegate.org.uk

We actively seek to fund projects which reflect the diversity of the borough. The Community Chest is inclusive of all people regardless of their age, culture, disabilities, ethnic origin, gender, nationality, race, religion or sexual orientation.

Please ensure that you have read the guidelines before making an application.
