“Local support is the best support you can get. The grants are a great platform to enable local groups to launch new projects and initiatives. The grants are up to £5,000 which is a significant amount of money. It changed Ray and his family’s life and many many other families in Haverhill.”

Making a difference to local people
“For the people we help, doing activities that you and I take for granted is impossible. The ONE Haverhill grant has enabled them to try new things and start new interests which helps them develop confidence and improves their quality of life.“
