Donate to Save Our Settlement

The Letchworth Educational Settlement is a registered charity (no. 311085) which receives no regular external funding, and as result was greatly affected by the disruption caused by Covid-19.

Despite the arrangements that the new management committee has put in place, and the wonderful amount of money that we have raised so far, the Settlement is still in a very precarious position, and we continue to be enormously grateful for any donations received.

If you would like to make a donation to the Settlement, you can do so by bank transfer, using the details below. This is the most cost effective payment method for the Settlement.  However if you would prefer to make a donation using your credit or debit card, please contact the Settlement office on 01462 682828 or click the “donate” button.
