We're an independent campaign working to ensure the needs of our community are at the heart of the Holloway Prison redevelopment

Holloway Prison in Islington, North London, closed in 2016. In March 2019, Peabody Housing Association bought the site with considerable subsidy from public funds. This is the largest development in our borough for over 30 years.

Since the announcement of the prison's closure, groups such as Community Plan for Holloway, Reclaim Holloway and Sisters Uncut, have been campaigning for the redevelopment to provide much needed social housing, genuinely affordable homes, and services for the people of Islington.


Our campaign is led by Working Groups, made up of people in the community, supported coordinated by three part-time staff members. The Working Groups are coordinated by a board of trustees representing a variety of local groups.


Our activites are funded by grants from the National Lottery Community Fund, Trust for London, and the Tudor Trust.
