Chris Hammond


Chris spent most of his working life teaching chemistry and physics in Hammersmith before retiring as the Assistant Head of Latymer Upper. He was the Latymer Foundation trustee on the Hammersmith United Charities for over 12 years and most of that time was spent as the Chair of the Grants Committee where the dormant “relief in need” was converted to the ambitious grant awarding body it has become today, helping to reduce poverty and deprivation in the north of the borough.

He is currently the national Chair of the Association of Members of Independent Monitoring Boards which has in its membership approximately a quarter of all the current members of prison monitoring boards in England and Wales, Vice Chair of the Sulgrave Youth Club and a trustee of the Sulgrave Trust.
