What’s new at Hammersmith United Charities

our brand new newsletter!

As part of our 400th celebrations last summer, we asked everyone who participated in the “big party” to write a wish for the charity’s future. A very clear message which came out of those wishes was for the members of the charity – residents, staff and trustees – to work more holistically together.
This newsletter – looking at all aspects of the charity and jointly produced by residents and staff – is our first initiative to put that aspiration into practice.

You can read it here – let us know what you think!
