What We Do

Community Help Hertfordshire works with seven Hertfordshire-based voluntary sector infrastructure organisations to provide projects to the local community. We currently have four projects that we work on to assist those in need, especially during COVID-19.

Who We Are

Community Help Hertfordshire is being delivered in partnership with seven Hertfordshire-based voluntary sector infrastructure organisations.

These include Communities 1st, Welwyn Hatfield CVS, Community Action Dacorum, North Herts CVS, Watford & Three Rivers Trust, CDA Herts, and Broxbourne & East Herts CVS.

Funding is provided by Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group, Borough & District Councils, and Herts County Council.
