Octopus Communities, based in Islington Octopus is a unique collaboration between community centres in Islington and is the Co-ordinator for Islington's Community Hubs Network.

Octopus Community Network (Octopus) is a collaboration between the largest multi-purpose community centres in Islington, and is as unique today as it was when first formed back in 1999. Now a registered company (2002) and charity (2004) with Director/Trustees representing each of the community centres, Octopus's mutuality informs core values and principles, and enables strategic thinking, peer-to-peer support to improve quality and sustainability, and encourages collaborations that widen participation and improves community cohesion.
