A counselling lifeline for people who’ve been affected by the pandemic

July 9, 2020 12:05 pm Published by

Many people in our community will be facing difficult times trying to deal with bereavement, trauma, health issues, financial stress and relationship breakdowns due to COVID-19.

The Counselling Foundation is proud to have been awarded a fund by Herts Community Foundation (HCF) to provide counselling sessions to residents across Hertfordshire whose lives have been adversely impacted by the pandemic.

The funds have been raised through generous donations to the National Emergencies Trust appeal, and to which Foundation clients will now be able to benefit.

Jo Spilling, Clinical Director
“The HCF grant will be a lifeline to many people who have been badly affected by the pandemic. People are already emailing asking for help and include those recovering from this debilitating illness, those who were bereaved at this time regardless of whether it was though coronavirus, and those who have suffered from isolation and the stress of contracting the illness or financial issues.”

Danielle Hood, Marketing Officer | Hertfordshire Community Foundation
“I was so pleased to learn that HCF were able to support your organisation during this time.”

Hertfordshire Community Foundation provides a range of grants to support the county’s community and voluntary groups

Hertfordshire Community Foundation is an independent charity which encourages local philanthropy. They provide advice and giving options for donors which we transform into funding and support for small charities, voluntary groups and individuals in Hertfordshire.  This in turn helps to help strengthen local communities and improve the lives of vulnerable people.
