Islington People’s Rights has been offering free independent advice to local people on welfare benefits and debt matters since 1969. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, a free exhibition is being held at Islington Museum 

‘Islington People’s Rights: Fifty years of tackling poverty in the borough’ runs until Tuesday 21 January 2020. 

From the cuts to welfare spending in the 1970s, to the deep recession in the 1990s, and to austerity measures in the 2000’s, the exhibition charts the organisation’s work to support the needs of local residents. 

To accompany the exhibition, free advice sessions are being held at Islington Museum on the following dates, no need book, just drop-in to speak to a specialist caseworker about welfare benefits and debt issues:

11, 16, 21 and 29 November and 2, 6 December, from 10.30am-12.30pm, and 14 December and 9 and 18 January, from 2-4pm.
