About us

A Force for Good In The Community

Based at the heart of Islington on Upper Street we run our services out of St Mary’s Neighbourhood Centre and Crypt.

We believe that everyone in Islington should have the opportunity to improve their life. Therefore we do all we can to help children, young people and other community groups to discover for themselves what they are capable of and inspire them to pursue their goals.

Mary’s Pre-school provides term-time education and childcare supporting disadvantaged children aged 2-5 years and their families.

Mary’s Play Scheme offers high-quality daycare for primary school aged children during school holidays to help them develop skills and confidence whilst supporting economic activity and job stability for parents.

Mary’s Youth Club works with young people aged between 10 and 19, offering them a range of creative, sporting, life skills and employment-enhancing activities, enabling them to get the opportunities and confidence needed to develop essential skills for the future.

Mary's Gym is a new 10-station affordable gym, designed by our members to be an affordable and comfortable community gym. Open for new members and personal trainers.

In addition to the above services we are a community venue with a variety of high quality spaces of different sizes suitable for a wide range of group activities and meetings available for hire.

If you'd like to run a class, need space for an off site meeting, want somewhere to play indoor football, host a lunch club, start a new community support project or need a venue for a birthday party, get in touch with us.
