2018/19 Fundraising Events
We are a local, independent charity so we regularly engage in fundraising events to help raise vital funds for the charity and enjoy ourselves along the way.
'We've been chosen by Coop Community Fund, to help raise money for a regular drop-in service at Redbourn.
The Co-op Local Community Fund helps to support local projects. Since its launch in 2017, Co-op members have raised £39 million pounds for over 12,000 local causes. Citizens Advice St Albans & District will now be able to access this funding opportunity.
How it works:
Every time a member shops at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on Co-op branded products and services helps fund community projects. Members can shop at any Co-op Group store across the UK.

Thank you for your support!
What we plan to do with the funds raised:
Unmet demand for our service has increased threefold. With your help, we plan to increase our opening hours and the number of users we are able to see. From our research, 20% of people can't self-help because they lack IT skills, are too stressed or unconfident. A trained volunteer in reception at each of our walk-in face-to-face sessions across the district would be able to support and guide some users, without the need for an appointment. .
Potentially, this new service would increase access to our service; reduce waiting times and relieve the demand on our volunteer advisers. Importantly, users would leave armed with the tools they need to resolve their issues and feel more confident. .
