The generosity of New Hope’s diverse funders remains crucial to our ability to offer comprehensive and personalised support to those who are homeless in Watford. We are extremely grateful to everyone – statutory funders, faith groups, companies, community groups, schools, Friends of New Hope and those who support our shops – who give generously to our work.
