The Notting Hill Housing Trust
Notting Hill Housing Trust houses over 70,000 people across London. It was set up in 1963 by a local clergyman who felt driven to do something about the shocking housing conditions of poor people in west London. Many of our tenants are vulnerable and isolated and need high levels of support.
The fundraising department exists for them. We raise funds from individuals, supporters, companies and trusts, and channel the funds directly to who needs it most. We:
- Provide grant funds for our neediest and poorest tenants
- We run a Volunteer Programme which recruits volunteers from all walks of life to befriend lonely people, decorate homes, and turn jungles into gardens as well as take groups of people with mental health problems or disabilities on day trips
- Have a full time Activities Officer who spends time finding out what the residents want and what makes them feel good or takes their interest. These things range from art, to gallery visits, to doing movement classes and dance, music, visits to their local church and sometimes learning how to use the computer.
