TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Providing essential and timely support to disadvantaged children and families in Hertfordshire.

For nearly 20 years, Hertfordshire Children's Fund has been providing effective, practical support to disadvantaged children and their families in Hertfordshire by providing grants of up to £300 for household essentials such as washing machines, cookers and beds to ensure they could keep their children healthy, safe and clean.
The Fund works alongside health visitors, social workers and other professionals to step in where most other sources of funding have been exhausted, making sure that each family's needs are properly met.

Applications come through the professionals who know of the children and can verify their situations. During the assessment and decision making process, consideration is given to the applicant’s ability to finance the item themselves, whether a grant for the item is the most appropriate way to help and whether they need to be signposted to other organisations for further support e.g. budgeting, benefits advice, advocacy services etc.

The Fund relies heavily on contributions from individuals, groups and businesses in order to continue to support those in need. If you would like to donate to the fund, take part in a sponsored event or organise your own fundraiser in support of the Hertfordshire Children’s Fund, we’d love to hear from you!
