Funding Local Causes

Building Effectiveness 2018

In it's 2nd year, the programme was funded by the Garfield Weston Foundation and Will Hobhouse, High Sheriff of Hertfordshire in 2017.

Each year Hertfordshire organisations are selected to participate in a 9 month tailored, supported development programme which is managed by HCF Training and Development and delivered in partnership with the Cranfield Trust.
Congratulations to the 9 organisations that completed the 2018 programme:
Canalability
Emmaus St Albans
Groundwork Hertfordshire
Hertsmere Mencap
Playskill
Resolve
The Living Room Hertfordshire
Watford Mencap
Watford Sheltered Workshop

All have assessed their outcomes from the programme and identified major benefits that will leave a longer term legacy from the hard work that they have put in over the year with the support of their mentors and advisors. We have compiled a portfolio of their case studies that you can download below.
