Hammersmith United Charities

Founding organisation

Hammersmith United Charities invests in the people and communities in the 8 northern wards of Hammersmith & Fulham to tackle poverty, deprivation and disadvantage, building on our legacies, wisdom, learning and experience gained over 400 years.

They support local people to build their confidence and resourcefulness, develop their own talents and skills, connect people together and strengthen relationships and neighbourliness within and across diverse communities.

They achieve these aims by:

– managing vibrant sheltered housing communities for older people
– creating safe, beautiful outdoor environments managed by the Charity’s community horticulturalist with the residents, for people to share and enjoy as neighbours
– funding a community based grants programme
– match funding the Wormholt & White City Big Local with the Lottery

and by working with local people, organisations and businesses to make Hammersmith a great place.
