What we do for families

We offer a range of free or low cost activities and support for families living in south Islington. From after school kids' clubs, giving children the opportunity to try different sports, to cookery classes and Sunday lunches, there's something to suit every family. We've also opened our community fridge to help those in need by redistributing fresh food. Find out what St Luke's has to offer your family.

Volunteering

Volunteers are the lifeblood of St Luke's, enabling us to offer our wide range and frequency of services and activities. Volunteers for St Luke's take on lots of different tasks, including teaching kids sports they might not otherwise have access to, serving drinks at one of our many clubs and helping an older person learn how to use a computer or mobile. Be part of our team!

Fundraising

Why not fundraise for St Luke's and give something back to the local community? We rely on funds coming in to continue to run our services and activities. Fundraisers can get involved in national events, large and small, and donate the money to St Luke's, or something on a smaller local scale, like a local run or a cake sale. Fundraising can be fun!
