Grants to individuals

Funding is available to help combat disadvantage and exclusion in Hertfordshire.

We currently have two funds that award small grants to support individuals, via applications from a supporting worker.

Please note we cannot accept self-referrals. Grant applications must be submitted by a professional person from a recognised organisation who has an on-going professional relationship with the beneficiary (e.g. health professional, teacher, social worker or support worker) and who can verify the beneficiary’s situation. We can only discuss grant applications with the professional involved.

If you are an individual looking for support, please ask a professional supporting you (as outlined above) to apply on your behalf. Do not apply to us, or call us directly as we will not be able to help you.

If you are an individual in crisis, you may find it useful to contact Herts Help.
These funds help families with young children as well as young people living in Hertfordshire.
