Supporting local organisations during the coronavirus crisis

Supporting local organisations during the coronavirus crisis
Two-minute read

We have been committed to supporting our communities ever since we were formed 13 years ago. During testing times like these, we are dedicated to that commitment more than ever.

Our Community Engagement team works tirelessly in our neighbourhoods to bring communities together. They also provide practical support and opportunities for our customers to engage with us and other community groups.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we are reshaping our Community Development Fund to provide support to small charities and organisations in the voluntary sector that are providing assistance to the local community. 

This fund exists to support large-scale projects or events which help develop our communities. In light of the current crisis, we want to support the efforts of the wonderful organisations who can continue to provide invaluable support to our communities and those most in need. 

We understand and appreciate that delivering these services is challenging under the government’s restrictive guidelines, so we are offering our backing to help ensure these services can continue. Community organisations and local charities can now apply to us for financial support – so please get in touch.

Our Community Engagement Manager Edel Maher said: “The residents of Watford have reached out to family, friends, neighbours and even strangers and we applaud you for all your help and support. We are proud to launch this new phase in our Community Development Fund and we hope that the camaraderie in our wonderful community continues through every challenge and opportunity that we face.”
