In 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 £1m in grants to a wide range of causes including charities, community groups, and individuals and families in crisis.
Stevenage Community Trust is a small local charity making a very real difference to the everyday lives of local people in need.

In 25 years we have given out £1 million in grants – a terrific achievement that we could not have realised without the generosity of our supporters.
We are looking forward to another 25 years of the Trust helping Stevenage people and organisations.Robert Stewart - Chairman
