Winter Hardship Fund






The Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation are running our Third Winter Appeal. This appeal aims to raise money to help vulnerable individuals & families stay warm and well over winter. We believe that no one should ever face a choice between eating and heating in the coldest months of the year.

With rising fuel costs, living costs and cease of the Universal Credits uplift, more people than ever are expected to face financial difficulties during the colder months this year.

We will be working with Community Partners to distribute vital support throughout our county to help identify and support those most in need over winter.

Please donate to support those experiencing hardship this winter by opening the link below:
