We’re making plans to ensure everyone in Hammersmith & Fulham has equal opportunities to thrive.

But before we develop them further, we want to know what you think.

“We’re a council that supports everybody,” said Cllr Sue Fennirmore, Deputy Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council.

“Our strength is our community in H&F, people care about their neighbours. That means we need to work together to tackle discrimination and unfairness and ensure the most vulnerable are looked after.”

Our priorities

  • Tackling hate-related crime – We don’t tolerate hate crime in H&F. We work with the police and support groups to stamp it out and help victims. But we want to do more and we can co-ordinate better if we appoint a new hate crime coordinator.
  • Tackling Isolation and loneliness – Nobody should suffer from isolation and loneliness. We want to expand our work teaming up with charities, enhancing our own services and introducing new ways to bring our communities together. This is also a key priority of H&F’s independent Older People’s Commission.
  • Ensuring economic opportunities for all – By making sure everyone has the chance to get the training and jobs, and progress in their chosen careers. Our plans include innovative schemes to boost small businesses, such as our ground-breaking partnership with Imperial College London.
  • Supporting people to live fulfilling lives – We are working hand-in-hand with residents to help them make the changes they want to see in H&F. We have worked with communities to establish local commissions of residents and experts on a diverse range of issues and have already seen some real, positive changes within our community.
