Welcome to Fulham Good Neighbours
Fulham Good Neighbours is a long-established and award winning, local charity, working towards a community where neighbours look out for each other and offer help when it’s needed. We started in 1966 and keep going strong after 50 years! We are grateful to our main funder over the last five decades – the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
Fulham Good Neighbours support mainly older people, including those with dementia, with practical tasks at home such as basic DIY, gardening, and decorating. We do what any good neighbour would: collect medication, escort to appointments, accompany shopping and take care of pets to name just a few of our free services delivered by over 50 volunteers, many of whom are older people. We also run a dedicated befriending scheme and a range of social clubs to help beat isolation and loneliness:
– Fulham Lunch Club;
– Silver Club;
– Art Group;
– Reading Group.
We also offer our hall to other local small groups supporting older people for regular or one-off meetings.
In 2016 we won the Best Charity category in the H&F Brilliant Business Awards and were shortlisted for the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Award in the Community Partnership Category.
