Black Lives Matter
We stand in solidarity with those making their voices heard in the fight against systemic racism.
Hammersmith United Charities stands in solidarity with those making their voices heard in the fight against systemic racism.
As a community charity in one of the most diverse areas of the UK, valuing equality and diversity is central to the way we work and we are committed to the fight against racism and prejudice.
We have a duty to the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people living in our Almshouses or working alongside us in our staff team, board and community partners to speak up. We want to let them know that we stand with them and against injustice and intolerance.
We believe that to be silent is to be complicit and so Hammersmith United Charities says with one voice that Black Lives Matter.
