Another wave of grant aid to grassroots projects assisting local H&F residents during the pandemic means that more than £133,000 has now been distributed.
A further £50,000 has been paid out this month by the Winter Wellbeing Community Fund, set up by Hammersmith & Fulham Council and administered by UNITED in Hammersmith & Fulham to channel government grant aid and private donations to where help is most needed.
Cllr Sue Fennimore, Deputy Leader of H&F Council, said the Winter Wellbeing Community Fund was ‘making a real difference to those who need it most’.
The latest projects to benefit include Solidarity Sports, which works to boost the confidence of children recovering from chronic trauma.
It has been awarded £9,940 to support families in poverty with food essentials and utility bills, delivering care packages including toiletries as well as books, games and skipping ropes to engage with children.
