John Hume


Why London?

John is a proud northerner who has lived in London for the past 25 years. He loves this vibrant city with its rich mix of people, views and culture but is also aware that London has some of the greatest extremes of wealth and poverty. He firmly believes that these inequalities are avoidable and that the people who experience the sharp-end of inequalities are best placed to come up with possible solutions. The London Community Foundation does just that by focussing on grassroots ideas to support Londoners to address both acute and chronic concerns of local people.
