Our community

Our Area of Benefit (AOB) comprises the eight wards in the North of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

The area is small geographically but much of it is densely populated and the two most densely populated wards in the borough (Addison and Askew) are within it. The current population is around 95 341 but is expected to increase by about 4% in the years up to 2023 – although the numbers of the very old and very young will increase much faster. The area experiences high levels of material deprivation and a poor quality environment. It stands on the brink of huge social change as large scale new development is implemented.

Our AOB is home to a highly diverse population reflected in the wide range of community and voluntary groups who provide community led services, activities and support locally. The charity is privileged to partner this energetic and creative sector
