Crouchfield Trust

CHIPS would like to thank Crouchfield Trust for donating a HUGE £10,000.00! 

The Crouchfield Trust is a registered charity that was originally set up in 1989 with the proceeds of the Crouchfield School.  The main purpose of the Trust is to promote the education, training and provision of care facilities for children and young people who ‘delinquent, neglected, ill-treated and in need of care, within Hertfordshire.  The Trust distributes grants accrued from its capital to voluntary organisations and other charities who have schemes or projects  that promote the object of the trust. For example, one of the most recent grants that has been provided was to a young person accommodation project in which money was given to them over a period of 3 years to enable start up costs for a hostel for 16-25 year olds including young people who were leaving care.
