Our Communities

The London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham was formed in 1965, although its origins are ancient (Fulham as a parish dates back to the early 12th Century). Today, the borough is home to around 170,000 people – including large French, Polish, Somali, Portuguese and Irish communities as well as black Caribbean and African, Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Chinese residents.

The borough has the second-highest proportion of single adults in any borough in England and Wales and one of London’s highest proportion of people in their 20s. This densely populated, youthful and cosmopolitan borough – with its three football clubs and four theatres – is our home and UNITED’s place of work.
