Womens Community Leadership Course

Hammersmith United Charities with its partners, Imperial College London, Hammersmith & Fulham Council and the Lyric Hammersmith are delighted to celebrate International Womens Day and to make a contribution to #pressforprogress by announcing that we shall soon be launching the Hammersmith and Fulham Womens community leadership course.


Agents for Change is an innovative new programme which will launch in 2018 in the Hammersmith and Fulham area.

It has come about as a direct result of a question raised at Hammersmith United Charity’s celebration of International Women’s Day in 2017. Following a discussion with Professor Maggie Dallman from Imperial College and Sian Alexander from the Lyric Theatre, a member of the audience asked if there was a local community based womens’ leadership programme. This is the result.

The programme will launch with a pilot course in the late Spring. The free course will be open to any local woman aged 18+ who wants to develop her leadership skills with the support of other local women..

Last week we celebrated the launch of Agents for Change, the new women's leadership programme developed in partnership by Hammersmith United Charities, London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, Imperial College London and Lyric Hammersmith.Professor Maggie Dallman tells us how the idea of the programme became reality!Music: https://www.bensound.com

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!
