The Hertfordshire Charity for Deprived Children

Hertfordshire Charity for Deprived Children awards small grants to children and young people aged up to the age of 17, who are from low income families living in Hertfordshire (not including Watford and Three Rivers).

The Charity seeks to help those for whom all statutory resources have been exhausted and where all local and specialist charity provision has been explored. Priority is given to basic necessities to improve their quality of life. This might clothing, bedroom equipment and other items for the home such as cookers or fridges.
