SYNC Consortium

A group of local youth organisations working together for the benefit of children and young people in Hammersmith and Fulham

SYNC - The Young Hammersmith and Fulham Consortium

SYNC was set up to encourage local youth organisations to collaborate for the benefit of children and young people in our borough. With 30 members at the moment, the Consortium is currently delivering two projects: DRIFT and PLAYZONES HAMMERSMITH AND FULHAM. Our first ever Consortium project - Ready, Steady, CONNECT - is just coming to an end and we are thrilled at the ways that we are able to work together to strengthen support for young people and offer bespoke solutions to the key concerns of local young people today.

How we are achieving our goals?

  • Teaming Up: We bring together local youth organisations, schools, local government, funders and the wider community to co-design bespoke opportunities for young people.
  • Securing Funds: We're bidding and tendering competitively for public service contracts and large-scale grants via a range of channels.

Together, we're making Hammersmith and Fulham a fantastic place to be a young person!

    There are three categories of consortium membership:

    • Full member. Organisations that meet all of the membership eligibility criteria.
    • Associate member. Organisations that are currently able to meet some but not all of the eligibility criteria have the intent and potential to convert to full members.
    • Affiliate member. Small micro organisations that don't have the capacity to convert to full members but can add value to the consortium.
  • Can private providers become consortium members?

    Yes. Locally rooted private providers can be within the consortium membership if they operate to a clear social purpose.

  • Can the consortium help organisations that are merging?

    The consortium will work alongside appropriate partner organisations to provide merger advice to member organisations. This will include advice on merger processes and the sort of issues to consider, e.g. due diligence.

  • Will there be a review process as the consortium develops?

    Yes. There will be an annual membership survey that will bring member's views of what they think is working well within the consortium and what can be improved.

  • Is there a joining fee?

    No. There is no fee to join as a member and as a consortium member of the Young Hammersmith and Fulhman Foundation.
