Hammersmith and Fulham Coalition Against Cuts (HAFCAC) is a campaign group led by and for Disabled people in Hammersmith and Fulham.
We set HAFCAC up 14 years ago to campaign to end homecare charging in the borough and in 2014 we achieved our goal – Hammersmith & Fulham is now the only borough in England that doesn’t charge older and Disabled people for ‘homecare’ services.
Since then we have been busy campaigning for co-production. Co-production means local Disabled people directly making decisions about services that affect them.
In November 2018 the Hammersmith and Fulham council agreed a trailblazing new model of co-production, making co-production the default way they make decisions in the borough.
Stephen Cowan, leader of the Council, is a big supporter and has said "H&F Council is committed to doing things with residents and not to them."
We’d love to hear from local Disabled people who want to join HAFCAC and get involved - we’re always open to new members and campaigners.
Join in our success!”
“There are 1,231 people in Hammersmith and Fulham who need help with everyday tasks that others take for granted, such as having a bath or doing the shopping. That help is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. In a civilised society, I believe home care is something people shouldn’t have to pay for.”
Council leader Steve Cowan, on International Day of Disabled People 2014
