Julian Hillman

Trustee

Social worker by training who started life as Probation Officer, worked for local Social Services and spent the years before retirement running the Ealing branch of Mencap the charity for people with learning disabilities

Julian has lived in Hammersmith since 1978 and was a local councillor for 4 years.  I identify closely with the area and have been a school governor at several schools and a trustee for several local charities over the years.  My children went to school locally and some of my grandchildren are at Wendell Park School.  Hammersmith is my home.

Hammersmith and Fulham is a lovely place to live, but it is a place of extremes and although Grenfell Tower is just out of borough, it can be seen from many locations in H&F and provides a challenge to us all.  I think UNITED will work towards developing a sense of greater neighbourliness.  The well off and the not so well off can help each other understand local needs and meet them.  With UNITED’s support those who can afford to give can identify projects in their area they would love to see thrive.
