Hammersmith United Charities traces its origins to a bequest in 1618 of £100 – in today's money about £10,000.
The charity owns and runs two almshouses, one being John Betts House in Rylett Road. Their grant making arm supports many local community connected initiatives and particularly those with an emphasis on helping young people who struggle to find employment.
