What we do:

Notting Hill Genesis (NHG) works in the community, providing homes for lower-income households. This is our primary purpose, and everything else we do supports that aim.

The sponsorship money raised by our runners contributes towards our hardship fund, to help residents during times of hardship and crisis.

NHG Hardship fund

Sadly, many of our residents are unable to meet basic food and energy costs or pay for essential household items such as beds, fridges, and cookers. This is often due to vulnerability, ill-health, family bereavement or unexpected gaps in benefit claims.

Our hardship fund supports around 500 NHG residents per year during these difficult times, with grants to help ease stress and suffering.

Thank you for the input and for organising this for me. My household feels less anxiety, more inclusive and connected, which is a good positive effect.” (Quote from tenant supported by hardship fund and partnerships team)
