Do you need funding for your community project?
New grants for projects benefiting people in our borough.
We invest in the future of our local community through our grants programme. We give grants to organisations supporting people who live in our area of benefit.
Each year Hammersmith United Charities provides £400,000 to local groups providing services or creating positive change. In our last grants round in April, we awarded grants totalling just over £100,000 to a range of organisations in Hammersmith.
These included support for a charity which literally brings the library to the doorstep of children’s homes on the White City Estate, a festival in Hammersmith celebrating the borough’s Polish culture, and skills training for single parents to help them find employment.
Among those 13 projects receiving grants were Fulham Reach Boat Club towards the costs of running its summer holiday water activities for young people, Outside Edge Theatre Company for its recovery drama groups for people affected by addiction, Bassuah Legacy Foundation for its support services for single parents, and the local branch of Open Age to provide a range of activities for older people in Hammersmith.
Who is eligible for a grant?
Your project can be one-off or ongoing, but we’re most interested in the difference you will make to local people. We are particularly keen to fund smaller, local organisations with a strong connection to their beneficiaries and a good knowledge of the local area.
Please contact us to tell us about your project. We like to talk to applicants to develop a better understanding of what they are doing and answer any questions you may have.
The next deadline for applying for a grant is midday on Friday 16th September.
