About us

The Islington Fair Futures Commission launched on 22 February 2017. Over the next ten months this pioneering project explored what is needed to improve the futures of children, young people and their families. The aim: to make Islington a great place to grow up in. The Commission is independent. It is made up of people from a range of backgrounds and lived experiences.

The Commission’s final report summarises what it heard and saw to provide some recommendations for positive change.
