Ancient Charities of Hertford

Hertford Town Council provides administrative support to the Ancient Charities of Hertford, which helps needy people in Hertford and the surrounding villages. 

Recently the majority of claims have involved requests to make homes safer for young children, provide household furniture or equipment, school uniform and requirements for education.

Also in some desperate circumstances ‘tide over' sums for food or other emergency needs. All applications come via Social Services, or through churches or the Citizens Advice Bureau.

Ancient Charities of Hertford was formed in 2009, following an amalgamation of a number of charities with long histories in Hertford: The Dimsdale Charity, Hertford Relief In Need, Miss M I Jourdain’s Charity and Noble’s Charity.

Making an Application

Applications can be made by organisations such as Social Services, Community Nursing Groups, Citizens Advice etc on behalf of residents of Hertford and the surrounding parishes (Bayford, Bengeo Rural, Bramfield, Brickendon Liberty, Hertingfordbury, Little Amwell, Little Berkhamsted, Sacombe, Stapleford, Tewin and Watton-at-Stone).
