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.

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!
