W3RT is proud to work in partnership with Watford Borough Council, Three Rivers District Council and other key donors to distribute vital funding to enable our local community to thrive during challenging times.

W3RT manages a range of funding streams in consultation with our partners that local charitable groups can apply for, under the umbrella of the W3RT Community Funds. You can find further details below on the different funding opportunities, eligibility criteria and application process.

These funds are open to support activities that are 100% charitable. All groups are expected to show that they have good governance and management arrangements and funds will only be allocated to support work in the area of Watford and/or Three Rivers.
