At Islington Mind we want everyone to have better mental health and wellbeing, to realise their ambitions and make the most of their lives, their relationships and their communities.

LATEST NEWS - Updated 16/08/2022

The waiting list for our Counselling Service/Talking Therapies Clinic is open as of Thursday 18 August.

The advice during the heatwave is to avoid travel, to stay hydrated, to try to stay cool using fans etc, and to stay where it’s coolest – this could be outside in the shade or indoors.

We are easing the restrictions we brought in to manage during the coronavirus lockdowns. We will no longer be taking bookings for the drop-in, art room etc. and will not have a cap on the number of clients who can attend.

We will continue to take people’s temperatures on arrival and encourage people to wear masks when moving around the building. We continue to ask that you stay at home and do not attend the day centre if you have a new continuous cough, a fever, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, or have tested positive for coronavirus. 

For details of our services, please view the timetable

We continue to offer 1-hour face-to-face appointments across all services. Please contact us on 020 3301 9850 if you would like to see a member of staff in person.

Reclaim Gift Aid
Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islington Mind to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islington Mind we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islington Mind to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islington Mind will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islington Mind receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
