Our Friends provide help to make Hertfordshire a better place for everyone

Friends are a group of individuals, families and businesses who want to make a difference to the people and communities of Hertfordshire by supporting Hertfordshire’s most vulnerable residents.
Donations received from Friends are pooled to provide grants to families living in crisis and to local charities and organisations who work tirelessly to address need and deprivation.

  • HCF makes giving easy and efficient. Through our thorough understanding of the county we will direct your donations to those in greatest need.
