Angel Islington

A Great Experience

Reducing crime - Safer communities - Cleaner neighbourhood

We are dedicated to creating a safer and welcoming neighbourhood for everyone to live, work and visit.

Our crime reduction and security training initiatives empower our members to tackle the challenges of retail and business crime. Our Business Crime Officers are on the ground to support and advise our members every day while the Business Crime Reduction Partnership unifies businesses, police and other agencies to devise a strategic approach to address issues. These are complemented by our active PubWatch and BusinessWatch groups, which reinforce support networks between police, council, community and business.

We’re also creating a smarter neighbourhood. Seven recycling services (paper, cardboard, plastics, printer cartridges, white goods, furniture, and coffee grounds) are included in the BID levy, as well as street cleaning and graffiti removal services.

A Strong Local Identity

Green initiatives - Welcoming neighbourhood - Community support

We’re focused on creating a more sustainable Angel. Our Angel Responsible Business Network, sees businesses, charities and civic institutions collaborate to enable greener ways of working, and support greater economic and social inclusion. The BID also works with strategic partners such as Transport for London and Islington Council to advocate and advance clean air and net zero initiatives.

Angel is an unmissable place to visit any time of the year – and we want to keep it that way. Our year-round floral displays and street furniture, including our very popular bike planters, ensure the area is an attractive place to work and visit, while our seasonal lights ensure the Angel always delights in the holiday season.

But it’s not just about the look and feel of a neighbourhood, it’s also about how its community is supported. Our work with the area’s charities amplify their campaigns and widens awareness to help them do more great work for the area.
