Dena Tyler, Manager of Dacorum Community Trust said:

We are hugely grateful for the funding from the National Lottery, which will enable us to continue to support the people of Dacorum, who are struggling with the effects of the current cost of living crisis and the impact this has on their families and mental health.

 This funding will allow us to continue to help over 1200 new cases over the next 3 years, enabling us to relieve the pressure people in our community are facing, and get them through the short-term challenges that have a major impact on their lives’.

Claire Furnell-Williams, Chair of Dacorum Community Trust said:

‘I’m delighted that the National Lottery Community Fund has recognised the importance of the work the Trust is doing in Dacorum, and that they have awarded us this funding for the next three years. 

The money is for core funding, which is wonderful news as this will allow us to help even more people in need in our community, and ensure our limited funds are distributed to where they are needed most.’
