Hertfordshire’s Cost of Living appeal

Please donate so that we can help people in Hertfordshire struggling to get by

The cost of living crisis is impacting local people in Hertfordshire with individuals and families struggling to cover their basic living costs including heating and food. With another fuel price increase expected this autumn, this situation will sadly worsen for many.
The new HCF Hertfordshire Cost of Living Appeal will support local people facing a broad range of social need including fuel and food poverty.

Following the government’s recent announcement that all households will receive £400 back towards fuel costs HCF is inviting those who are financially secure to donate some or all of their rebate to HCF.

Every penny raised will stay in Hertfordshire and your support will help those facing a challenging and uncertain future. From food banks to dept advice any support you can give will make a positive difference to local lives.
