We had a successful Launch Party and AGM 2016 during which the accounts were approved, and we are pleased that we have a firm foundation for our work in the year ahead thanks to grants from Awards for All – The Big Lottery Fund, Islington Community Chest and the Cripplegate Foundation, London Community Foundation and Comic Relief. During our AGM Mick Holloway, Maddy Robinson, Jonathan Joels, Robin Latimer and Greg Foxsmith were all re-elected as trustees. To find out more about our trustees please check out Who we are. At this year’s AGM Bridging the Gap Islington finally had a formal “launch” to celebrate our successful mentoring projects. A packed party at the launch party held in Islington Town Hall heard from volunteer mentors, Mark Brennan from CARIS Nightshelter, and from Councillor Joe Calouri, Islington council Executive member  for  Children, Young People & Families.
