UNITED in Hammersmith & Fulham

Hammersmith United Charities, together with our sister charity in Fulham, Dr Edwards and Bishop King’s charity have come together in the run up to our 400th anniversary to create a new organisation to bring everyone in the borough together to make ours a place where everyone thrives.  We want to galvanise local people, local businesses and local organisations to commit time, money and energy to create a stronger community. We are urging people to UNITE to support our vulnerable neighbours, whoever they are, to help people change their lives for the better and  to create a safe and secure neighbourhood for everybody. To do this, we want to revive the spirit of local philanthropy which brought the two founding charities into being 400 years ago to create a new fund to support local community projects across the borough.
