H&F Community Aid Network (CAN) Freephone: 0800 145 6095

H&F CAN is the volunteer community aid network launched by Hammersmith & Fulham Council to support residents in need during the coronavirus pandemic.


Working with the voluntary and charity sector, and alongside the ward and street-level mutual aid groups, H&F CAN offers support to residents who don’t have friends or family close by to help them. Our taskforce of volunteers will help those most in need at the time of their greatest need.

Do you need urgent support with food, loneliness or isolation?

Or are you worried about a friend, neighbour or relative?

Call: Freephone 0800 145 6095, 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 2pm on Saturdays

Or email: can@lbhf.gov.uk
