With the help of donations from Hertfordshire residents and organisations we provided vital grants to community groups supporting those in need, providing access to fuel and food, activities to reduce loneliness and isolation and support to access specialist services and community groups.
We are so grateful to everyone who supported our 2021/22 appeal, thanks to you many local residents did not have to choose between heating or eating.
Research states that roughly 1 in 11 homes in Hertfordshire is classified as ‘fuel poor’ meaning that the household’s energy costs are above average and their remaining disposable income after paying their bills puts them below the poverty line.
The effects of fuel poverty can be devastating. It can lead to social isolation, poorer physical and mental health, lower educational achievement and rationing of food and other essentials.
Our Winter Appeal 2022 will launch again in the autumn, with skyrocketing fuel and energy costs we know that this year our support will be needed more than ever. Should you wish to make a donation please use the information below:
