We believe that everyone in Islington should have the opportunity to improve their life.

At Mary’s, 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.

We want to make a difference.  Do you?

When you hire a room at Mary’s, you’re getting your own space – a competitively-priced space that really works for you – and you can feel pleased that you’re doing something for young people in Islington.

At Mary’s Youth Club, young people aged between 11 and 25 will get the opportunities and confidence to develop the skills they need for their future.

At Mary’s Pre-School, we can help you ensure that your children will get the best start in life.

At Mary’s Play Scheme, your children will have an action-packed, enjoyable time which they will want to return to.
