Who We Are
The Hand in Hand Group started in 1981, when a small number of parishioners from St. Francis of Assisi in Notting Hill Gate got together to help the older, disabled and housebound members of the parish to take a fuller part in the activities of their local community.
Although it originated in the church of St. Francis of Assisi, its activities are now open to any disabled, housebound or older person living in the neighbourhood, irrespective of creed.
The Hand in Hand Group currently has about 150 members, mostly from the Notting Hill area of London. It is run entirely by volunteers.
