Hammersmith United Charities
supporting our local community for 400 years
Hammersmith United Charities invests in the people and communities in the eight northern wards of Hammersmith & Fulham to tackle poverty, deprivation and disadvantage, building on our legacies, wisdom, learning and experience gained over nearly 400 years.
We support local people to build their confidence and resourcefulness, develop their own talents and skills, connect people together, and strengthen relationships and neighbourliness within and across diverse communities. We achieve these aims by:
- funding a community based grants programme, currently £250,000 a year
- managing vibrant and popular sheltered housing communities for 100 older people
- creating safe, beautiful outdoor environments, managed by the Charity’s community horticulturalist with the residents, for people to share and enjoy as neighbours
- match funding the Wormholt & White City Big Local with the Lottery- our contribution is £100,000 a year, a unique partnership not seen elsewhere in the 150 Big Locals nationally; and working with local people, organisations and businesses to make Hammersmith a great place.
The Chair of HUC would like to appoint new trustees who will bring their experience to the Board in the areas of older people, housing, marketing and or fundraising to help ensure that Hammersmith United Charities will be serving the people and communities for another four hundred years. The Chair is also looking for someone with a finance background to chair the Finance and Investment Committee.
If you have any of the above experience and live, work or have a connection and empathy with our area, join us as a trustee as we plan for our 400th anniversary in 2018.
