Stuart Low was a young Islington man who sadly took his own life in 1997 after failing to find the help he needed to cope with schizophrenia.

His death prompted local people to form the Stuart Low Trust (SLT). Their aim was to create social therapeutic activities for vulnerable, local people. 

How we help

Most of our activities take place in the evenings or at weekends, when people may be at their lowest ebb and many services are closed. 

"Sometimes just getting your activity flyer in the post keeps me alive." Stuart Low Trust Participant 

We are proud of what we have achieved in Islington since we were formed in 1999, but we think that there is more that we can do.  

Our achievements 

Over the years we have been fortunate to have support from the local community as well as several London-based and national organisations.

External achievements have included: 

The Sunday Philosophy forum was featured in the Guardian’s Comment is Free section in 2013. 

The British Medical Journal chose the Trust as its small charity of the year for 2014 and then repeated it every year.
