Arsenal in the Community has been making Islington kids’ lives better since 1985.

It delivers sport, social and education programmes to more than 5,000 people each week and also offers a wide variety of programmes, such as football sessions for children on nearby estates and a healthy eating partnership with Jamie Oliver.

As well as being based at the Arsenal Hub, in Benwell Road, it also runs programmes in venues across north London.
