Grants of up to £300 for families in crisis

Application Deadline: Rolling

Started in 1996, Hertfordshire Children's Fund has been providing effective, practical support to disadvantaged children (aged 0-16) and their families in Hertfordshire by providing grants of up to £300 for essential items such as washing machines, cookers and beds to ensure they can keep their children healthy, safe and clean.

Applications must come from a worker or trained volunteer who is part of an organisation that is supporting the family or young person and is capable of assessing their needs. The form must be returned signed by both worker and intended recipient (typed signatures are not acceptable) either via post or scanned and sent via email.

For those concerned about sending sensitive data via email, you can send forms via a password protected word document. Please also see our privacy policy.

If the application is successful, the payment will be made to the organisation so they must be able and prepared to administer and supervise the grant on our behalf.

For example, applications are welcomed from those working for:

  • Hertfordshire County Council Social Services
  • Children’s Centres
  • Housing associations
  • Charitable and voluntary groups e.g. debt advice agencies, family support etc.

    Decisions are made on a rolling basis, and we endeavour to respond with a decision within a month.

    Please read the full guidelines and terms and conditions (below) before making an application.

    Application forms can be downloaded below.
