About the Stevenage Community Trust  

hilda-lawrence.jpgIn 1989 Hilda Lawrence was appointed the first female mayor for Stevenage. It was during this time that she convinced local businesses to assist with the creation of Stevenage Community Trust to help those less fortunate in the town and surrounding villages. 

Thanks to the relentless support from local businesses and generous individuals since the Trust was created in 1990, we have been able to distribute in excess of £2m in grants to a wide range of causes including charities, community groups, and individuals and families in crisis. 

Stevenage Community Trust is a local charity making a very real difference to the everyday lives of local people in need.

In our first 34 years, we gave out more than £2 million in grants to help local people and organisations.

We could not have realised this without the generosity of our supporters and our aim is to build on the these rock solid foundations and be even more impactful for our community as we focus on the next 15 years towards our 50th anniversary.Robert Stewart - President
