The Big Conversation
As part of our preparations for our 400th anniversary, we have run a comprehensive programme of community engagement and consultation which we have called the Big Conversation. We have been talking to as many stakeholders as possible – grantees, council members and officials, service providers, voluntary groups, businesses and developers. Both staff and trustees have been involved in these conversations and the emphasis has been on listening and learning. The process – which is ongoing – has helped us deepen our understanding of our Area of Benefit by seeing it from such a wide range of perspectives. It has helped us understand how we might focus our contribution, supported the development of partnerships and underpinned the creation of UNITED in Hammersmith and Fulham.
UNITED in Hammersmith and Fulham is part of a network of London place based giving schemes coordinated by London Funders.
