The Mayor of Hammersmith & Fulham Appeal Fund

The Mayor has chosen to support the Barons Court Project and Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank as her charities during her mayoral year.

Barons Court Project

The Barons Court Project is a day centre offering a range of practical services to people who are homeless or living with mental health issues. Our friendly drop-in offers a safe and welcoming space, a subsidised cafe, showers, laundry and IT suite. We also support our service users through running a range of opportunities for self-development and participation. Much of these opportunities are volunteer led and we have built up partnerships with the local community and corporate groups to widen our offer.

The project has an impressive record in helping people in Hammersmith & Fulham.

Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank

The primary objective of the Hammersmith & Fulham foodbank is the prevention or relief of poverty in and around the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. In particular, but not exclusively by 1) the provision of emergency food parcels to individuals in need and/or other organisations working to prevent or relieve poverty; 2) providing practical advice and support to individuals, either directly or by referral to approved partner agencies; thereby enabling them to find lasting relief from financial hardship.

As well as offering emergency food parcels, we also run children's holiday clubs, a cookery and meal planning course - called 'Eat Well Spend Less', drop-in sessions for the community, based at our Hub in W12; and provide professional advice via two Citizen's Advice workers, based in our Foodbank Centres.
