Hammersmith United Charities provides homes for people over 60 within the area of benefit who are living on a low income and who would otherwise find it difficult to fund suitable homes for themselves. A limited number of women over 55 may also qualify.
Trustees have the power to make grants to groups or individuals in the area of benefit to alleviate deprivation and hardship. As a result of the report commissioned by the Charity from the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion at the London School of Economics and presented in 2009, the trustees now have access to detailed information about where the most deprived areas are and who needs help most.
There’s a little piece of heaven just off the Goldhawk Road.
A place full of beauty, many flowers to behold.
As I sit in my little heaven: lost in thought of old and new The peace and calm around me, to touch it would be gold.
And then I hear the ripple of the water in the fish pond not far away, Saying Troubles? Just wash them all away.
Then a voice from the distance says “Hi – How are you?”
Lonely? How can I be “in my home in my heaven”
Just by the Sycamore tree.
