With significant change to our funding the sustainability of Home-Start Watford and Three Rivers now relies on the support and generosity of the local community.
Over the last two years Home-Start Watford and Three Rivers has faced significant changes to the funding they receive. With cuts in local authority funding we now rely more heavily on the support and generosity of the local community. This page is to acknowledge and thank local companies, businesses and individuals who support us to continue to prove a service for families in desperate need. On average we support approximately a 100 families each year (300 children), year on year the number of referrals we receive by far outweigh our capacity to provide a service. This leaves some families needing support without any. It costs £25 for a volunteer to visit and family (£100 a month) so every bit of support we receive makes a difference to the local community. Without this support our ability to reach 100 families each year will be impaired. We are developing opportunities for corporate sponsorship page link and are incredibly grateful to everyone who supports us!
