fighting food poverty

Every person whose life is improved or saved, stems from an act of generosity that’s purely voluntary. That’s why donating is so extraordinary when you do it.

About us

AY Group Community Services CIO is a not-for-profit organisation whose objective is to provide community cohesion and wellbeing for people of all ages, cultures and abilities.

We are passionate in our belief that London communities desperately need local hubs to provide a set of safe, secure and proactive services. The AY-Group has sought to achieve this, created in 2015 to help residents develop their skills and gain employment while offering them a wide range of activities to participate in. Our hub seeks to provide a cellular office opportunity, designed as a space to both work and learn.

We help young people in your community, Hammersmith and Fulham (H&F) and other areas in London to go from being unemployed or unemployable to become skilled and then helping them get into work or start their own business.

Hi, Thank you for the delivery as we received it promptly, you can see here using the link how much it helped us. I would definitely say the items supported those who were going hungry and in order to provide to the most vulnerable on a large scale, I should suggest ambient food such as packet rice, cereal, powdered mash, grains, pasta, etc. Thank you once again for the donation and we hope to partner with you again very soon. – Rafa Ahmed, Senior Project Executive,

Dear Danny, As a key supporter of the Royal Free Charity during the Coronavirus crisis, I wanted to thank you for your incredibly kind donation of supermarket items to our staff and to let you know about the broadcast of a two-part documentary, Hospital: fighting COVID-19. Filmed over three weeks at the Royal Free London during the peak of pandemic, it will air on BBC 2 at 9pm on Monday and Tuesday, the 11th and 12 of May. A trailer for the programme has started to run across all BBC channels too. The documentary will bring home powerfully the value of the enormous support you have helped provide to staff looking after our desperately ill patients at Barnet and the Royal Free hospitals. The episodes include the treatment of the last patient to have a transplant at the Royal Free Hospital before the service was paused and the care of a 73-year-old at Barnet Hospital who is seen struggling with low oxygen levels. I hope you will watch the documentary and feel assured that your generosity could not have been better placed. Your support is ensuring that the needs of staff at the Royal Free and Barnet hospitals will continue to be met, and, on behalf of the Royal Free Charity, I would like to thank you for enabling us to do this. We will, of course, keep you updated on our progress and the impact of your support. But if you would like to discuss any aspect of this, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. In the meantime, thanks again for your truly wonderful support during this critical and challenging time.

With best wishes,

Laura Butler, Royal Free Charity, COVID-19 Emergency fund


Dear Danny,

Thank you to AY Group Community Services CIC for their kind contribution for coffee, biscuits, pot noodles, masks etc. for the NHS staff which was received by my colleague Angela at Caludon Centre reception. She then took that parcel to our COVID19 Mental Health Hub. Thank you to all the staff at AY Group Community Services CIC.

Kindest Regards,

“Hi Danny! Yes we have received the donation many thanks you guys are amazing!! Thanks,” – Jonathan

“Good morning Danny! Yes we have opened the boxes thank you. There was so much in there! The only thing we didn’t really use, was the loo roll as staff are ok getting that so we redirected it to a food bank facility for vulnerable people. Everything else was great.” – Helen

“AY has helped me a great deal. Without their help I would have gone hungry. I am indebted to AY, so please continue funding them because they are of great service to this community. We need more people like them.” – Joseph Graver
