HCF is now urgently raising funds to support voluntary groups providing care and support for elderly and vulnerable people hit by the social and economic impact of the coronavirus.
The new Coronavirus Disaster Relief Fund
appeal for Hertfordshire will allow us to rapidly deploy resources to community-based organsiations so that they can help vulnerable people to weather the short and long-term impacts of the outbreak.
Donations will be targeted, in the form of grants, at local charities supporting local people facing a range of social issues including social isolation, food poverty, poverty and poor mental health.
