Find out about All in Islington

All in Islington is a project that aims to get disabled people in Islington active. The project is led by Islington Council and GLL, who manage the borough’s leisure centres.

The activities below form part of the project. Where relevant they are listed on the website:

  • Football takes place for young people with a learning disability, women with a learning disability, and mental health service users (by referral only). A multi-aspect football festival took place in autumn 2014
  • A cycling session for all disabled people takes place at the Podium that surrounds the Emirates
  • Swimming lessons took place in May to August 2015 for people with a learning disability. This will be repeated and expanded to include people with a physical disability
