Fulham Good Neighbours is a long-established and award-winning local charity (Registered Number: 1113752), working towards a community where neighbours look out and care for each other. 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, Adopt a Garden 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 offer our hall to other local small groups supporting older people for regular or one-off meetings. We also run a dedicated befriending scheme and a range of social clubs to help beat isolation and loneliness:
Our Digital Inclusion project links older housebound people with younger volunteers teaching them how to use the internet. We also offer our hall to other local small groups supporting older people for regular or one-off meetings.
In 2019 we received The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service - the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK.

We provide a range of services to help older people stay socially connected, healthier and independent for as long as possible. We also provide volunteering opportunities.
