Willow Foundation – Established in 1999, the Willow Foundation provides special days out for seriously ill 16-40 year olds.

Named after Anna Wilson, whose nickname was 'Willow', it was set up by her parents, Bob and Megs Wilson.

Bob Wilson is best known as a former Arsenal and Scotland goalkeeper and TV presenter.

The charity has its offices in Salisbury Square in a building that was once used as offices by Hatfield Brewery (and later as a bank).

Although the Wilsons have stepped back from the day-to-day operations they remain active in fundraising and publicity work.


Herts Young Homeless Group (HYHG) – an independent charity for 16-25 year-olds who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless.

Established in 1998, HYHG has its headquarters in York House, Old Hatfield, and smaller offices across Hertfordshire.

The charity provides support, advice, and information to young people. This includes prevention, crisis intervention (like emergency accommodation through the Crashpad scheme), tenancy sustainment and looking after their health.
