A dream has become reality after the opening of a new facility for charities – and it is hoped the model will be rolled out across the rest of the county if it proves successful.
The Charity Hub was opened at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden on 15th December 2023 by the Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Robert Voss, whose brainchild the project was.
The hub will enable charities from Watford and surrounding areas to work alongside each other in a shared office space, exchange ideas, learn and grow together. The organisations are also set to benefit from the link with the global movie giant, which is providing the space rent-free, and its association with many other businesses.
Mr Voss explained his “dream” started two-and-a-half to three years ago after meeting several smaller charities that were finding it difficult working from home or were not involved with other charities.
He said: “I suddenly thought wouldn’t it be great if we could put them in one space, that they call home, interact with each other, learn off each other and really grow together.”
