Islington Bangladesh Association (IBA)

IBA was established in 1984 as a self-help group when several local Bangladeshi families settled in Islington came together to work collectively to improve their quality of life. Since inception IBA's main concern has been to engage with those members of the community who are poor and most at risk of social exclusion in learning and networking activities, so they can regain confidence, raise health awareness and improve health inequality, acquire new skills, broaden their horizons and access the support services they might need to pursue personal development opportunities. The IBA services are also currently accessed by BAMER communities residing in Islington Borough. In recent years the IBA services was accessed by people coming from neighbouring boroughs.
