What we do
We want people who live, work and play in Hammersmith and Fulham to have fulfilling lives. Working with local residents, businesses and organisations, we want to create communities and neighbourhoods in which people feel safe, valued and connected.
Our aim is to raise awareness about the great talents and assets that exist in our community. We want to support local projects and people who develop new and innovative ideas that bring their neighbours together and make their lives better.
We want to shine a light on the challenges people face living and working in one of the most affluent but also most unequal boroughs in London.
Building new networks and partnerships
You know that feeling when people who share a passion meet and discover how much they can do together? That is when magic happens.
We want to act as a facilitator and catalyst for new collaborative projects. We want to bring together local residents, businesses, faith institutions, schools and organisations who care about Hammersmith and Fulham and its people and see benefit in developing local projects and initiatives.
Encouraging local giving
We are part of a growing movement of local giving initiatives in London. Local giving benefits everyone – the people who give as well as those who receive support.
We raise money to support local charitable projects and all of that money will be spent on those projects.
We also encourage other forms of giving including volunteering, mentoring, professional pro bono advice and in-kind support.
Funding local solutions
We want to inspire, support and enable locally grown and locally developed projects that bring people together and build their capacity and resilience. We aim to follow people’s energy and ideas and support groups and individuals who develop innovative and effective solutions to address local needs and give people joy.
We distribute grants to existing charities with a proven track record of making a tangible change in their local community. We will also support individuals and groups who develop new projects and initiatives that meet our funding criteria.
We fund activities that help people feel that they are living in a strong and supportive community.
