H&F CAN is the volunteer community aid network launched by Hammersmith & Fulham Council to support vulnerable residents 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.

Community Coronavirus (COVID-19) Appeal
UNITED in Hammersmith & Fulham Charity launched a ‘Community Coronavirus (Covid-19) Response Appeal’. This enables local individuals, businesses and foundations across the borough to support local response.
The appeal stands in partnership with Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s coordinated effort with the voluntary sector to prevent and respond to the pandemic. As such, we are well placed and in touch with local charities including frontline groups to see what’s needed and how funds raised can be best spent.
100% of funds raised will help groups working with people who face risk as a result of Coronavirus in Hammersmith & Fulham. Please give today.
Imperial Health Charity is today launching an urgent fundraising appeal to help our hospitals fight the COVID-19 outbreak.
The COVID-19 Relief Fund will support hospital staff on the front line of our NHS as well as helping the most vulnerable patients cope with sudden and unexpected financial pressures.
You can support our appeal by making a donation today.
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
Many of our local businesses are still open and supporting the community in whatever way they can.
