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.
