Making Islington a fairer place for all is the top priority for Islington Labour.

Since 2010, the Tory Government has imposed a programme of austerity that has seen huge cuts to public services and vital social security support for local people.

In Islington, Tory austerity has meant:

  • Core government funding to Islington Council cut by 70% since 2010
  • 300 local police officers cut
  • Local schools have over £300 less to spend per pupil
  • 10,000 families on Universal Credit will lose an average of £500 a year
  • Longer NHS hospital waiting times

Despite these cuts, we are determined to continue to make a difference to local people and to fight to make Islington a fairer place for all.

Islington Labour is making a difference to local people by: 

  • Building new council homes for local people – the largest programme for 30 years in Islington
  • Providing Free School Meals for all nursery and primary school pupils
  • Supporting over 5,200 local unemployed people into work, including 1,500 young people
  • Protecting frontline Council services, such as care for older people, libraries and maintaining weekly bin collections                                             
  • Supporting young people to get the best start in life, with 9 out of 10 Islington schools rated Good or Outstanding

After 8 years of Tory austerity, we know the cuts don’t work.

We need a Labour Government, led by Jeremy Corbyn, that will end austerity, invest in public services and support local people.

We, the undersigned, call on the Tory Government to end the cuts to our public services and to invest in the services we all rely on to help make Islington a fairer place for all.
