The Stuart Low Trust has become the first Islington charity to be accredited with the prestigious Healthy Workplace Charter award.
The charter, which is backed by the Mayor of London, demonstrates that an organisation is focused on health and wellbeing and is devoted to its volunteers and staff by making its workplace healthier and happier.
Being recognised with this award enriches our work with volunteers, many of whom are isolated Islington residents. The award demonstrates SLT’s extra support for volunteers, not only when they volunteer but also in their personal lives – Hannah Kalmanowitz, Chief Executive, Stuart Low Trust
The accolade was announced at our fundraising Afternoon Tea on Thursday 30 November by Polly Kwok, Assistant Public Health Strategist with Islington Council.
Joining Polly in paying tribute to SLT were Steven Suggate-Francis, Funding Officer with Islington Council, and Islington’s Mayor, Una O’Halloran.
SLT’s third annual Afternoon Tea, held in the Old Hall at Claremont on White Lion Street, N1, was as bustling as ever. Stalls staffed by a team of SLT volunteers sold bric-a-brac, books and gifts as well as mouth-watering cup cakes generously donated by Hummingbird Bakery.
