"A student told me how she misses her sister and family and yet knows she can't see them. Then she turned to me and with her beautiful smile said; “You (the Centre) are my family."

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.
