We make grants for work which helps people living in our Area of Benefit


The COVID-19 pandemic creates a very challenging and uncertain situation for all us and is placing additional burdens on charities. During this time of crisis, demand far outweighs our available resources and we are keen to avoid placing any unnecessary pressures on charities’ time. It is for this reason that Hammersmith United Charities has decided to alter its application process and will not be accepting unsolicited applications for funding until further notice.

We are still distributing funds but only to organisations we invite to submit a proposal.  We realise that this will be disappointing to you and we are sorry that we are not in a position to fund everyone who does good work in Hammersmith. The next distribution of funding from Hammersmith United Charities is due in September 2020 and we will continue to monitor the situation and publicise any changes to our approach on our website.

We are supporting the Hammersmith and Fulham Coronavirus Community Response Appeal, launched with our partner United in Hammersmith and Fulham. The Appeal has already reached its initial target of £50,000. Applications for grants of up to £1,000 can be made here.

London Funders are also coordinating a London wide emergency fund which will be distributing  £5m; applications can be made here.

More funding opportunities here: C19 Funds.

Thank you for your understanding, we hope that you and your team stay safe and well.
