Hammersmith & Fulham Council and H&F Giving have launched the Summer Household Support Fund, awarding grants to community organisations which support those most in need in the local community. These grants are to provide direct support to residents facing crisis or poverty.

The funding has been provided by the Government and is being administered by H&F Giving.

We are looking to distribute £240,000 to local Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations to support households in Hammersmith & Fulham which otherwise might face crisis and to provide them with food, fuel and other essentials. Of this at least 1/3 is ringfenced for households with pensioners and at least 1/3 for households with children under 19.

We are inviting established VCS organisations with a track record in supporting vulnerable residents in Hammersmith and Fulham to apply for a grant of between £2,000 and £40,000.

With applications for amounts over £20,000, we require them to be made for a project that is being run in partnership with another VCS group in the Borough.

Deadline for applications midnight Friday 22 July, 2022.
