ABOUT US

Canonbury and the Borough of Islington have among the highest rates of child poverty and deprivation in the UK. Such conditions raise the risk of social exclusion, gang crime, school absence and teenage pregnancy.

Friends of the Rose Bowl is a local charity run by a Board of of volunteer Trustees. We care about our community and the standard of living and opportunities available to its young people. We aim to make a real difference to their lives, which benefits us all.

We financially support the Rose Bowl Youth Centre, on the edge of the New River Green Estate in N1. Together with our partners, Isledon and Islington Council, the Youth Centre provides a variety of programmes and services to tackle social exclusion through education, play, sports, arts and music. The young people gain self confidence, a sense of achievement and respect.
