Supporting community groups

In the past year, Hammersmith & Fulham Council has given £3.5 million to support the work of the charities and community groups which make such a difference to residents’ lives.

Organisations funded by the Third Sector Investment Fund are helping to:

  • build a stronger local economy with more jobs for local people
  • empower and enable local communities
  • provide the best start for young people
  • improve health and adult social care
  • improve everything we do – delivering social inclusion
  • make the borough safer and cleaner.

Please see our summary of who accessed services and the outcomes achieved for residents over 12 months. You can also find out about each of the organisations we funded to run these services below. 

Third Sector Investment Fund (3SIF)

  • In the past year the council has funded more than 40 groups to run  more than 50 services.
  • The groups used 1,684 volunteers to deliver services; including staff from local businesses who gave their time to community projects.
  • It represents more than 73,000 hours – the equivalent, at current London Living Wage rates, of £719,000.
  • In addition, groups have raised an extra £2.4million in funding to support their work.
  • A total of 79,000 residents have benefited.

Fast Track Small Grant (FTSG)

This is a funding programme for local 3rd sector organisations in need of small grants to start or deliver specific services or activities. We use it to support the widest possible range of local organisations, and we prioritise funding to those groups we don't currently fund.
