Support Us With Our

Bedfordshire Hardship Fund

With the unprecedented steep rise in energy and fuel costs this year, and the rise in the basic costs of living, many families, disabled and elderly people are struggling to make ends meet – and having to make the difficult choice between heating and eating.


Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation have established a year round hardship fund, to support those struggling in our county. This appeal aims to raise money to help vulnerable individuals & families, working with selected community partners to support those most in need. We believe that no one should have to go without the basic necessities, including affording to heat their homes, have access to hot water or basic white goods essentials.

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