The Great Avonmore Library Make Over
The Great Avonmore Library Make Over joined Hammersmith & Fulham Hive1 week ago

We want to improve the facilities at Avonmore Library to provide a welcoming space for all local residents. We will: - Redesign the floor plan to make better use of the space available (a professional architect has already done this free of charge) - Replace all book shelving with a more flexible and attractive option (several units will be mobile so the entire space can be opened up for community events) - Encourage more local children to make better use of the library by providing book bins, accessible shelving and child friendly seating - Purchase 4 tablets so our Citizen Advice volunteers can provide quicker service and help more people when they need it most - Provide an improved Information Hub where local people can more easily access essential information to help them know their rights, solve their problems and better run their lives - Install hanging rails for local artists and children to display artwork, creating a brighter environment for all.

1960s Reminiscence Room, Shepherds Bush
1960s Reminiscence Room, Shepherds Bush joined Hammersmith & Fulham Hive1 week ago

Shepherds Bush Market has recently acquired some fabulous shipping containers in the Space called the Old Laundry Yard. This space could potentially be an amazing place to enjoy the Summer with open air pallets, umbrellas and food carts. We would like to add some fun, colour and culture to the area by creating a space where Young Volunteers and Elders from the Borough can both come together, enjoy some good old fashioned 1960s vibes whilst sharing stories, playing music, doing workshops and exchanging ideas.

Hub for the Homeless at The Upper Room
Hub for the Homeless at The Upper Room joined Hammersmith & Fulham Hive2 weeks ago

We have plans to refurbish the kitchen at The Upper Room, to dramatically improve the quality of services on offer as well increase our capacity. This, along with a new computer training room, will make The Upper Room an important homeless services hub for West London. Both aspects of this project will have huge positive impacts. 1. The new and improved kitchen - Food draws in the marginalised, brings people together and reduces social isolation. Free meals are at the very heart of what we do and are key to the trust-building process. 2. The new training room - Our UR4Driving students will use the computer training room by day to study for their theory test. In the evening the room will be used to run health & wellbeing therapeutic workshops for our homeless and vulnerable guests. This refurb cannot happen without your help! Please pledge what you can - just £5 will go a long way.

Acres Of Fun

At lets unite for Autism our vision is to design, develop and create opportunities that enable children, no matter what their ability to play together. We believe in the social model of disability. In other words, disability is a socially created problem and it is up to all of us to make the environmental changes necessary to allow for the full participation of people with disabilities in all areas of social life. With this in mind, we strive to create completely unique play sessions that punctuate, not define a play space, embracing the true meaning of inclusion. Special activities, also known as inclusive play, are designed for Autistic kids with the right playground equipment that promotes inclusiveness and comfort. These sessions are backed by independent research and are designed on the basis of guidelines developed by leaders in the field of inclusive design, which confirm that children with autism may do best in structured environments, characteristic of inclusive playgrounds.
