Our History

Our independent charity is located in a busy part of North London right on the edge of three Boroughs. In April 1999 Islington, Hackney and Haringey came together to make an application to the Single Regeneration Budget (SRB) for funding to regenerate the area. The SRB application was successful, the Finsbury Park Partnership was formed and work on delivering the SRB objectives began.

Finsbury Park Trust was set up in 2002 to take on the work of the Finsbury Park Partnership, which managed the seven-year regeneration programme for the local neighbourhood. The community-led regeneration of Finsbury Park established a diverse yet united and sustainable neighbourhood, one in which individuals and families and businesses have the skills and confidence to achieve their full potential, supported by joined-up local governance.

Originally envisaged as a tri-borough regeneration agency the charity now continues to promote improvements in the quality of life for everyone who lives or works in Finsbury Park. We work in partnership with other organisations and the councils we can effect greater change and support vulnerable local people.
