In these challenging times, there are various sources of additional support available to families in the local area. Please see the links below If you require assistance with uniform, food or some general advice and support.
Hertfordshire County Council have created a campaign called ‘Here for you this winter’ to help inform Hertfordshire residents about the support that is on offer (locally and nationally) to help manage the rising cost-of-living and to stay safe and well this winter.

- Funding for those who have difficulty paying their electricity, gas and water bills.
- Vouchers for food and school uniforms.
- Supply of new and recycled furniture and white goods.
- An outing is arranged annually for families with young children which have received a home visit within the past year.
