UNITED in Hammersmith & Fulham

Hammersmith United Charities, together with our sister charity in Fulham, Dr Edwards and Bishop King’s charity have come together in the run up to our 400th anniversary to create a new organisation to bring everyone in the borough together to make ours a place where everyone thrives.  We want to galvanise local people, local businesses and local organisations to commit time, money and energy to create a stronger community. We are urging people to UNITE to support our vulnerable neighbours, whoever they are, to help people change their lives for the better and  to create a safe and secure neighbourhood for everybody. To do this, we want to revive the spirit of local philanthropy which brought the two founding charities into being 400 years ago to create a new fund to support local community projects across the borough.

Aunt Esther’s Story – Enigma Event

Last Saturday we had our second Enigma Event in partnership with “Women Make Change” who put together a great event for International Women’s Day. Women Make Change is a charity that promotes and protects the health and safety of women and girls affected by domestic violence.

Melanie Nock took the chance to introduce Aunt Esther’s Story. Esther Bruce’s autobiography written by Stephen Bourne tells the story of a black London Seamstress from 1912–1994 and provides a first-hand account of the life of a black Londoner in the pre-Empire Windrush years. When Esther Bruce was born in Fulham in 1912 only small black communities exited in Britain.

Another big announcement was the launch of the “Agents for Change” Women’s Leadership Programme that we founded in partnership with the H&F Council, the Imperial College and the Lyric Hammersmith.

Applycations are open now, find more information here: http://www.agentsforchange.wixsite.com/agentsforchange
