Tucked away behind Furniture Village on the Century Retail Park is the Watford Workshop – one of the town’s most fascinating charities.

Established for over 50 years, the charity provides work experience, skills training, and employment for disabled and disadvantaged people. Making a huge difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable and too often forgotten and neglected members of our community.

Now, as the charity grows and looks to support even more people, their partners James Hallam insurance brokers of Clarendon road have been busy creating an application for the ‘Aviva Community Fund’ in the hope to win a grant of £25,000. If successful the money will go toward a new mezzanine floor project and other investment in the building facilities.
