Welcome to our new website

Bridging the Gap Mentoring

Is the new working name for Bridging the Gap Islington. We are using this new name to make clear that we are offering a service to people in North London, not just Islington.


Need Encouragement? Looking for Support?


Bridging the Gap Mentoring offers trained volunteers to support you to look for housing, budget your finances, apply for benefits, with job applications, getting into education or training or with any other goals you may have.

They can help you to fill in forms e.g. for housing, benefits or employment. They can also provide general support and encouragement and may be able to go with you to appointments, for example with the council or benefit offices.

Our volunteers can meet you at a time and place that suits you for up to 4 months. Mostly we meet people in cafes.  All our volunteers are supported by experienced professionals who advise and help them.  

Please note, we will help with applications and searching for information but we do not provide accommodation or money. Also we are not lawyers. We help people between 18 and 65.
